PICO◊ system successful following reduction mammoplasty

Prophylactic use of PICO Single Use Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (sNPWT) showed reduced wound complications in recent clinical evidence1

A study published in 2018, carried out by Dr Robert Galiano1, has demonstrated the efficacy of PICO sNPWT when used prophylactically following breast reduction surgery.

Impressive performance for fewer healing complications

PICO sNPWT was assessed for surgical site complications (SSC) following elective bilateral reduction mammoplasty after 21 days, compared with standard care1.


Improved healing1 and surgical scar appearance3

Wound healing complications showed a relative reduction of 8% after 21 days, compared with standard care1

Dehiscence showed a 38% relative reduction after 21 days.

Negative pressure wound therapy with PICO sNPWT appeared to provide a particular benefit in preventing wound complications in patients with a higher BMI1.

Helping to reducce delays across patient profiles

At the healthcare provider’s discretion, patients can be safely discharged whilst still using disposable PICO sNPWT, offering potential reductions to your time and budgetary burdens.

PICO sNPWT continues to impress across surgical profiles

A recent meta-analysis by Dr Vicky Strugala demonstrated the success of PICO sNPWT across several specialties when used prophylactically, with a potential to help reduce costs and length of stay across varying patient profiles2
