“…36,41,45,[49][50][51][52] However, results in the literature are mixed, and other studies do not show this relationship. [6][7][8][9]13,33,[53][54][55][56][57][58] In the context of DIEP flaps, wound dehiscence is frequently attributed to suturing under tension and the extended length of the incision. 39,59 In this regard, the utilization of ciNPWT holds significant promise in preventing wound dehiscence by offering valuable physical support and functioning as a protective splint against the tensile forces acting on the wound.…”

“…This contradicts several studies demonstrating decreased surgical site infection rates with ciNPWT. [5][6][7][8][9]11,13,14,30,33,36,41,[43][44][45][46][47][48][49][50][51][52][54][55][56][57][58][61][62][63][64][65][66][67][68][69][70][71][72][73][74][75][76] However, the occurrence of infection in DIEP flaps is infrequent, with a recent meta-analysis reporting a donor site infection rate of 4.79%. 77 Mechanistically, ciNPWT acts as a barrier that prevents contamination of the surgical site with bacteria before reepithelization, encourages drainage of excess interstitial fluid, increases lymphatic flow, improves blood flow, and induces angiogenesis, theoretically decreasing the risk of infection and expediting healing.…”
