Our objective is to describe the experience of the Vascular Surgery Service of CHULN as a pioneer of the application of NPWT in complex wounds in this particular case. The initial approach to this patient lesions was the responsibility of Plastic Surgery.However, due to the severity of the personal history and the evolution of the cicatrization of these lesions, Vascular Surgery intervened. The surgical treatment of this patient was multidisciplinary, having undergone a bilateral iliac revascularization and skin grafting. NPWT proved to be the best advanced therapy in the management of wound bed moisture level, reduction of perilesional edema, infection / biofilm management and optimization of tissue in the wound bed, promoting epithelialization and consequently healing.
