Post-market Randomized Open-Label Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Effectiveness of Closed Incision Negative Pressure Therapy versus Standard of Care Dressings in Reducing Surgical Site Complications in Subjects with Revision of a Failed Total Knee Arthroplasty (PROMISES)

Brief description of study

The purpose of this study is to evaluate surgical incision complications in patients undergoing revision of a total knee arthroplasty (TKA) when a negative pressure therapy dressing is used to treat the closed incision as compared to a standard dressing. The safety of each method and quality of life (QoL) of participants will also be studied. The standard of care dressing that will be compared to the negative pressure dressing is a dressing containing silver that does not apply suction to the dressing. NYU will use Aquacel Ag surgical dressing as its standard of care dressing for the study.
