The Prevena™ 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.
The Prevena™ Incision Management System is designed to create an environment that helps to promote healing by:
Removing exudate and potentially infectious material
Helping to hold the edges of the incision together
Protecting the surgical site from external infectious sources
