V.A.C.® Therapy delivers positive healing outcomes in managing Diabetic Foot Ulcers

V.A.C. Therapy can halve the rate of amputation2,4

Foot wounds can be one of the most debilitating complications of diabetes, affecting 25%19 of diabetic patients over a lifetime. Because they are difficult to treat and heal, chronic diabetic foot ulcers present significant challenges. As a result, more than 400,00024 lower limb amputations take place every year in Europe.

85%25 are thought to be preventable.

Two separate independent trials2,4 demonstrate that V.A.C. Therapy can halve the rate of amputation.
