KCI provides advanced negative pressure therapies and post-operative dressings designed to help manage and protect closed surgical incisions.

The Science Behind Our Products

KCI solutions are built on an extensive understanding of incision management, supported by a large body of clinical evidence

Why It Matters

Timely incision management can help reduce the human and economic costs of SSIs. Complications with incision healing lead to serious patient consequences.

  • There are 8.2 million people at risk for Surgical Site Infections (SSI)1
  • SSIs account for 21.8% of all healthcare-associated infections2
  • Of the top 5 Healthcare Acquired Infections (HAIs), SSIs account for 33.7% of the $9.8 billion cost to the healthcare system*1


*Top five HAIs are central line-associated bloodstream infections (CLABSI), ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP), Clostridium difficile infection (C diff), surgical site infection and catheter-associated urinary tract infection (CAUTI).
