Abdominal Wall Clousure Device

Developed by: Fundación Instituto de Investigación Marqués de Valdecilla


IDIVAL has developed an abdominal wall closure device that can be used to prevent Abdominal Compartment Syndrome (ACS) and provide a safe abdominal closure, avoiding hernias and necrosis. It is a dynamic traction wall system (DTWS) associated to negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT), for the progressive closure of the open abdomen and the correction of complex abdominal defects. A prototype has been developed. Currently, clinical validation is necessary.
