V.A.C. Therapy

V.A.C. Therapy

Advanced Wound Healing by Design

Since its introduction in 1995 (U.S.) / 1996 (Europe), V.A.C.® Therapy has changed the way wounds are healed. With more published clinical evidence than any other form of Topical Negative Pressure, V.A.C.® Therapy has been selected as the treatment of choice for more than 8,000,000* wounds worldwide.


The integrated V.A.C.® Therapy System promotes wound healing through Topical Negative Pressure (TNP). Delivering negative pressure (a vacuum) at the wound site through a unique, proprietary dressing helps draw wound edges together, removes infectious materials and actively promotes formation of the granulation tissue. These Mechanisms of Action (macrostrain, microstrain) lead to fast20 and effective5 wound healing and improved patient Quality of Life1 in a cost-effective way3.


With more than eight million wounds treated worldwide* and published in more than 918 peer-reviewed articles, including 41 RCTs, V.A.C.® Therapy delivers the clinical and economic outcomes healthcare professionals and their patients can trust from TNP Therapy.
