Abstract

In postoperative management following hand surgery, it is important to begin exercise therapy as early as possible. We previously reported a bag-type negative pressure wound therapy that allows finger exercises to begin almost immediately. Here, we devised a zippered bag-type negative pressure wound therapy, which includes a basic fibroblast growth factor (b-FGF) preparation that can be sprayed on the wound daily, and this demonstrated good results. In conventional negative pressure wound therapy, there were some problems. For instance, the wound condition could not be observed freely during treatment, the wound could not be irrigated, sufficient rehabilitation could not be performed, and the b-FGF preparation could not be used daily. However, by using the new dedicated zippered bag, we overcame these problems.
