Gentle, unrelenting dynamic appositional forces (cyclic stretching) counter the retracting forces that keep wounds open.
How? Cyclic stretching of tissue facilitates collagen fiber rotation, increasing skin coverage. Chronic cyclic stretching leads to a remodeling response including tissue generation and adaptation.1
Unlike static devices, dynamic therapeutic tension rapidly addresses the challenge of the retracted, stable wound. Therapeutic tension addresses the inertia required to return wound edges back to their original position for delayed primary closure.
Dynamic Tissue Systems:
- Dynamic wound closure
- Retraction prevention
- Tissue support and expansion
ABRA Abdominal allows for the option of primary closure for retracted, mid-line abdominal defects.
Installation of the ABRA Abdominal System pulls muscle planes and skin together from their lateral retracted state with relentless dynamic appositional traction, leaving the leading edge of the defect margins undisturbed when performing definitive primary closure.
An abdominal closure restores normal physiology, which in certain cases has been shown to reduce length of stay, short-term morbidity risks, and future
Subcutaneous Tissue for Open Wounds
ABRA Surgical closes retracted skin defects through chronic cyclic tension. A sound primary closure replaces skin grafting and the associated rehabilitation, pain, and loss of function.
ABRA Surgical is indicated for use in preventing, controlling, reducing, and closing retracted soft tissue defects.
