Indications for Use

Before use, physicians should review complete risk information and essential prescribing information which can be found in the Product Instructions for Use .
 
The PREVENA™ Incision Management System is intended to manage the environment for surgical incisions that continue to drain following sutured or stapled closure by maintaining a closed environment and removing exudate via the application of negative pressure wound therapy. 
 
For maximum benefit, the PREVENA™ Incision Management System should be applied immediately post surgery to clean surgically closed wounds. It is to be continuously applied for a minimum of 2 days up to a maximum of 7 days. It can transition home with the patient; however, all PREVENA™ Dressing changes should be performed under direct medical supervision.
