The 3M™ AbThera™ Advance Open Abdomen Dressing is a temporary abdominal closure device that helps surgeons take control early when managing a challenging open abdomen, helping to achieve primary fascial closure.

The AbThera Advance Dressing features a perforated foam that collapses medially helping facilitate primary fascial closure by providing medial tension on the wound edges when negative pressure is applied. The AbThera Advance Dressing Kit consists of 1 fenestrated visceral protective layer, 2 pieces of 3M™ AbThera™ Advance perforated foam, 1 SensaT.R.A.C. tube set, and 4 pieces of 3M™ V.A.C.® drape

Suggested Applications

  • AbThera Therapy is indicated for temporary bridging of abdominal wall openings where primary closure is not possible and /or repeat abdominal entries are necessary
  • The intended use of this dressing is in open abdominal wounds with exposed viscera including, but not limited to, abdominal compartment syndrome
