Date:3/22/2012

CHANHASSEN, Minn., March 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Wound Care Technologies, Inc. (www.dermaclose.com), an emerging medical technology company, today announced the publication of an invited review article by MAJ Benjamin K. Potter, MD, LTC Brett A. Freedman, MD, and Michael S. Shuler, MD, at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Bethesda, MD, describing their treatment for closing extremity fasciotomy wounds using the DermaClose® RC Continuous External Tissue Expander as it applies to the treatment of traumatic war injuries.

The article entitled, "Fasciotomy Wound Management and Closure" appears in the current issue of Techniques in Orthopedics® (Volume 27, Number 1, Lippincott Williams & Wolters, www.techortho.com). The authors describe how the use of vacuum-assisted closure (V.A.C., Kinetic Concepts, Inc., San Antonio, TX) in combination with dermatotraction is their preferred method to positively influence the rate of delayed primary closure of extremity fasciotomy wounds. Paul J. Anderson, President and CEO of Wound Care Technologies, Inc. said, "Thi speer reviewed published article continues to demonstrate the significant role of continuous external tissue expansion in the treatment of traumatic injuries".
