Management of complex infected postoperative Caesarean section wound with negative pressure wound therapy with instillation (NPWTi): a multidisciplinary team approach
Caesarean sections represent 76.9% of births in the population covered by medical aids in South Africa, which is one of the highest in the world. The authors present a case of a patient with a complex, infected Caesarean section wound, which was successfully treated by a multidisciplinary team using surgical debridement, various types of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) and definitive closure. This combined treatment allowed the patient to be managed as an outpatient, able to care for her newborn twins, with a positive impact on her emotional, psychological and social well-being.
