Quantcast Acelity - Oliver's Story

Oliver's Story

Learn about how ABTHERA™ Open Abdomen Negative Pressure Therapy helped one millworker continue his life.

In January 2010, Oliver Glenn, a millworker in Port Huron, Michigan, was working at a construction site when he fell 35 feet and landed on a beam. He developed Abdominal Compartment Syndrome. His surgeons applied the ABTHERA Open Abdomen Negative Pressure Therapy and, to their surprise, Mr. Glenn was able to be closed up within 24 hours of being placed on the ABTHERA Therapy. Mr. Glenn has expressed how grateful he is to ACELITY for creating the ABTHERA Therapy because without it, he believes he might not have seen his wife or kids again.
