Abstract

We present a case of necrotizing infection of the lower extremity. Following serial surgical debridement and negative pressure wound therapy with instillation and dwell time (NPWTi-d), the patient underwent meshed HR-ADM placement. Following six weeks of continued NPWT, autologous grafting was performed. At the time of skin grafting, the meshed HRADM was completely incorporated into the host tissue with a reduction in wound depth with no bone or tendon exposed.
