Post-operative recovery is accompanied by a unique set of challenges that can compromise positive surgical outcomes and slow recovery. Swelling is a common side effect post-surgery that can contribute to additional complications.
Swelling creates tension around the wound, which can lead to dehiscence. If dehiscence occures, infections and other complications may result - complications that delay suture removal or lead to reoperation and possibly jeopardize long-term functional outcomes.
3M™ PREVENA RESTOR™ Therapy is the next generation of incision management therapy using negative pressure therapy for post-operative healing. It is the first and only system designed to manage the incision as well as surrounding soft tissue to reduce swelling, enable better tissue healing and minimize healing complications.
Built on the proven technology of the original 3M™ Prevena™ Therapy System, 3M™ Prevena Restor™ Therapy is designed with new features to optimize care and recovery for your patients.
The effects of negative pressure applied to intact skin via 3M™ Prevena Restor™ Therapy were evaluated using Finite Elemental Analysis (FEA). Based on the analysis, it is hypothesized that volumetric expansion may help:
Indication: The PREVENA RESTOR™ Incision Management System is intended to manage the environment of surgical incisions that continue to drain following sutured or stapled closure by maintaining a closed environment and removing exudate via the application of negative pressure wound therapy.
NOTE: Specific indications, contraindications, warnings, precautions and safety information exist for the 3M™ PREVENA RESTOR™ Incision Management System. Please consult a physician and product instructions for use prior to application. Rx
