Topical negative pressure (TNP) has been introduced in complex surgical reconstruction and difficult wound healing, having proven to be effective in both drainage of wound secretions and calling for a new, sterile granulating tissue. In the last 15 years many reports have been focusing on TNP in different surgical specialties (orthopedic surgery in exposed fractures, general surgery in eventration, cardiothoracic surgery in sternal dehiscences, plastic surgery in difficult wounds and pressure sores). The authors report their personal experience being among the first Units to use TNP systematically in Italy.
