Take Control Early with Your Next Challenging Open Abdomen

ABTHERA™ Open Abdomen Dressing, when used with the ABTHERA™ Therapy Unit, forms a temporary abdominal closure system that helps surgeons take control early when managing a challenging open abdomen and helps achieve primary fascial closure.
ABTHERA™ Open Abdomen Dressing is designed to:

  • Provide medial tension, which helps minimize fascial retraction and loss of domain2,3,4
  • Help protect abdominal contents from external environment
  • Provide separation between the abdominal wall and viscera, protecting abdominal contents
  • Allows for rapid access for re-entry and does not require sutures for placement
