In contrast to the fulminant success of the vacuum assisted wound closure (VAC) and its growing spectrum of indications little is known about the physical and physiological background of this therapy. Therefore several in vitro tests were done using both types of foam (Polyurethan and Polyvinylalcohol) to measure the pressure conditions at the frontier foam / wound. We were able to show that a pressure transmission through both foams is possible even in bigger distance without loss of pressure. Also we show that under VAC at the wound surface and in the surrounding tissue regions with positive and negative pressure can be found.
