Abstract: Management of open highly contaminated wound due to high velocity trauma (road traffic accidents) is always a challenging problem for surgeon for primary definite management of fracture. For such grossly contaminated wounds new modalities of treatment are available and are under trail. Here in our study we present the effectiveness of vacuum assisted negative pressure wound therapy for excellent management of wound with gross contamination and more effective granulation tissue formation, leading to reduction of bacterial load which helps in preventing infection and being cost effective.
