Patients with severe HS or Necrotizing Fasciitis often require extensive surgical debridement.
Traditionally, these wounds have been closed using split-thickness skin grafts with or without the use of the VAC device.
Our case study demonstrates good outcomes using the VAC device alone to achieve complete closure when applied immediately following debridement with frequent VAC changes.
