Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) with instillation therapy and dwell time (NPWTi-d) is an innovative method for complex wound healing.

NPWTi-d combines vacuum-aided drainage of wounds with the precise distribution of topical cleansing solution over the wounds. Furthermore, super oxidized solutions have illustrated their ability to potentiate wound healing and decrease bacterial contamination.

Furthermore, aided with this method, infected wounds can be disinfected. If surgical debridement or removal of the infected site is not possible or desired.

Therefore, in the case of a 66-year-old patient with diabetic foot syndrome (DFS) with severe infection, the approach was to couple NPWTi-d with instillation and dwelling of the super oxidized solution to bolster benefits. This is the first case report using NPWTi-d with instillation of super oxidized solution in DFS in Switzerland.

This case indicates that this approach is beneficial in the treatment of complex and critically infected wounds in DFS.
