Caption

Treating necrotising fasciitis using negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT). Elderly woman in a hospital's intensive care unit being attended by a nurse. The patient has an extremely large abdominal wound due to necrotising fasciitis, a tissue-destroying bacterial infection. This was caused by a severe case of diverticulitis, an intestinal infection, which had spread into the abdominal cavity surrounding the intestines. The patient has undergone surgery to remove the infected tissue, leaving a large open wound on her abdomen. NPWT is a treatment that uses a piece of sterile foam attached to a vacuum pump that removes any excess blood and fluid from the wound, allowing it to heal more quickly.
