V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy

V.A.C.® Therapy with Instillation

V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy combines the benefits of V.A.C.® Therapy with automated topical wound solution distribution and removal. 
V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy can help: 

  • Cleanse with the instillation of topical wound cleansers
  • Treat with the instillation of topical antimicrobial and antiseptic wound solutions
  • Heal the wound and prepare for closure

What Makes V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy Unique

V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy consists of NPWT coupled with automated, controlled delivery to and removal of topical wound treatment solutions from the wound bed.

The soak time and automated volumetric delivery differentiate V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy from other commercially available instillation systems that either provide instillation solutions under continuous flow (without a soak time) or use gravity to instill solution into the wound.


V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy is also unique in that it uses dressings specifically designed for instillation therapy with NPWT. The dressings are less hydrophobic than the current V.A.C.® Therapy Dressings and provide improved fluid distribution within, and removal from, the wound bed

V.A.C. VERAFLO CLEANSE CHOICE™ Dressing is used in conjunction with V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy is ideal to facilitate the removal of thick wound exudate, such as fibrin(wet slough), and other infectious material. The unique, 3 layer design can be used for wounds with complex geometries, including explored tunnels or undermining where the distal aspect is not visible.

The contact layer with a pattern of 1 cm holes provides mechanical movement at the wound surface, in combination with cyclic delivery and dwell of topical solutions. The 2 cover layers without holes are designed to help capture large wound exudate before they enter into the tubing, they also provide application options for wounds with varying depths.

Subject to clinical assessment, may be considering when surgical debridement is not possible or not appropriate.


A Variety of Therapeutic Options

The V.A.C.ULTA™ Therapy System is designed to provide therapeutic options that can be customized for different wound care needs. NPWT parameters, such as negative pressure settings, and duration of negative pressure therapy between instillation cycles, can also be customized.
With V.A.C.® Therapy, customers can select continuous or intermittent (DYNAMIC PRESSURE CONTROL™ Therapy Mode) application of negative pressure. With V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy, the user can select the appropriate topical wound solution needed for each wound to be treated (such as normal saline or wound irrigation solutions and cleansers) as well as adjust the instillation fill volume and soak time.
Additionally, the controlled instillation of topical anesthetic solutions may provide patient comfort during therapy and at dressing changes. With the use of patented SENSAT.R.A.C.™ Technology, V.A.C.® Therapy Systems are designed to accurately deliver the selected negative pressure at the wound site for optimal healing. There are currently three dressing options to choose from for use with V.A.C. VERAFLO™ Therapy. Each dressing allows clinicians to customize therapy based on the goal of therapy.
