SKILLMAN, N.J., April 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ConvaTec, a world-leading developer and marketer of innovative medical technologies for community and hospital care, today announced that Holy Family Medical Center will now use ConvaTec Negative Pressure, which offers a line of products designed to overcome the clinical challenges of negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT).

According to the results of the evaluation, wounds managed with Engenex® system and Bio-Dome® technology dressings saw a mean decrease in wound size of 63.2 percent after two weeks of therapy and an overall mean decrease in wound size of 83.3 percent at the completion of therapy.
