A Study of the Experimental Prevena™ device (Incisional Negative Pressure Wound Therapy) for Soft Tissue Sarcoma Wounds
open to eligible people ages 18 years and up
This is a study comparing two methods of dressing a post operative wound that are currently in practice. One method is a traditional dry gauze dressing. The other method is using a negative pressure dressing that provides gentle suction on the wound. The investigators will attempt to determine how well the use of post-operative negative pressure dressing reduces wound healing problems in patients who have surgery after radiation for a sarcoma in the thigh or leg.
