A wound dressing for abdominal viscera protection in negative-pressure wound therapy

Country of Origin: Spain
Reference Number: TOES20180831001
Publication Date: 31 August 2018

Summary

A Spanish Biomedical Research Institute has developed a wound dressing for abdominal viscera protection in negative-pressure wound therapy that prevents adhesion to the internal organs tissues of the abdominal wall and optimizes the drainage capacity and distribution of negative pressure therapy.
The Institute would like to talk to companies interested in commercializing this wound dressing, a services agreement or in a research cooperation agreement to develop it.

Description

A Spanish Biomedical Research Institute has developed a wound dressing for abdominal viscera protection in negative-pressure wound therapy that prevents adhesion to the internal organs tissues of the abdominal wall and optimizes the drainage capacity and distribution of negative pressure therapy.

Abdominal compartment syndrome is caused by intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH), leading to ischemia and organ dysfunction. When abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS) occurs, it is necessary to establish a system for the management of wounds that facilitates the re-entry into the abdominal cavity and allows successive interventions.

Negative pressure therapy (TPN) mitigates intra-abdominal hypertension (IAH) and prevent its progression to abdominal compartment syndrome (ACS), facilitating the healing and closing of the abdominal cavity.

Here the Research Institute presents a wound dressing for abdominal viscera protection in negative-pressure wound therapy (TPN) that prevents adhesion to the internal organs tissues of the abdominal wall and optimizes the drainage capacity and distribution of negative pressure therapy.

The Institution would like to talk to companies interested in commercializing this wound dressing, a services agreement or in a research cooperation agreement to develop it.
The present technology is available to license.

Advantages and Innovations

The main competitive advantages of the wound dressing are:
- It avoids its adherence on the tissues, allowing the effluents of the internal organs to drain homogeneously.
- It optimizes the distribution of the negative pressure therapy by the wound dressing surface to the most distal areas, improving the drainage capacity.

Stage Of Development

Prototype available for demonstration

Stage Of Development Comment

A prototype has been developed and tested in porcine model.

Requested partner

Companies involved in the development of devices for negative pressure therapy (TPN) as well as dressings wounds and drainage components of said systems.
