Some 242 procedures were included in this multicentre trial. The rate of wound complications including infection was similar: 31 per cent after negative pressure dressings versus 28 per cent in controls. Surgical site infection rates were also similar: 11 versus 12 per cent, respectively.Pubmed Link
