Conclusions

From the cases reported herein, it can be inferred that mNPWT is a convenient therapeutic option in the wound clinician's armamentarium that appears to deliver healing outcomes comparable to those of tNPWT but with additional improved wound-related quality of life. The cases described herein reveal the real-world effectiveness of mNPWT in the setting of challenging patient presentations and wounds that have stalled. The cases outline common endpoints for advanced therapy usage outside of wound closure, such as granulation tissue formation and quality of life.
