Convincing case examples

Vivano Spectrum

Shared knowledge is the
basis for disseminating best practice.

The “Vivano® Spectrum” is a biannual journal highlighting clinical case examples in which
NPWT and the Vivano device were instrumental in achieving clinical success and healing.It
illustrates that the full extent of potential NPWT applications is still growing. Considering
that NPWT was first introduced in the 90’s, this is an encouraging sign for prospective
clinical research.
