Fasciotens®Abdomen system application for delayed primary fascial closure and observed physiological improvement of the patient

Mavc, Z., Kunst, G.

fasciotens®Abdomen was used in a middle-aged patient with severe peritonitis after small bowel perforation.

"Post-installation of the device, rapid improvements in respiratory dynamics, diuresis, stoma output, and hemodynamics were observed within hours, suggesting a profound impact on overall well-being. This cascade of physiological benefits hints at broader implications in optimising patient recovery."

  • Overall stabilisation of the patient
  • Successful fascial closure after 6 days of using the device
  • increased renal output
  • improvement of ventilation parameters
