Resumen

LORCA GARCIA, C. et al. Experience and results with the use of vacuum assisted therapy at the children's Hospital La Fe, Valencia (Spain). Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2011, vol.37, suppl.1, pp.S41-S52. ISSN 1989-2055.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4321/S0376-78922011000500007.

Vacuum assisted therapy in complex and complicated wounds has been used since the 40s; however, it has only been applied in paediatric patients recently. To our best knowledge there are not A level evidence studies in this field, although experience in its use has been shown to be satisfactory in the majority of cases. Due to the importance in health management of controlling costs and resources, this therapy represents a useful tool, specially when we try to reduce hospital stay and improve quality of life, which is very important in children. We report our experience in the use of vacuum therapy in paediatric patients in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Department in La Fe University Hospital, Valencia, Spain, between 2007 and 2010.
