Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) systems

FDA notified healthcare professionals of an update of activities to date involving NPWT, including a summary of additional adverse event reports received by the FDA since November 2009, as well as new recommendations for health care providers and patients/caregivers, and information about pediatric use. The safety and effectiveness of NPWT systems in newborns, infants and children has not been established at this time and currently, there are no NPWT systems cleared for use in these populations.
