A Temporary Abdominal Closure system that helps you to take control early when managing a challenging open abdomen, helping you achieve primary fascial closure.

  • Actively removes fluid and helps reduce edema
  • Provides medial tension which helps minimize fascial retraction and loss of domain1
  • Helps isolate viscera and abdominal contents from external environment
  • Provides separation between the abdominal wall and viscera, protecting abdominal contents
  • Allows rapid access for re-entry and does not require sutures for placement
