*A retrospective analysis was conducted utilizing a national, all-payer hospital database and included patients who received NPWTi-d (3M™ Veraflo™ Therapy) as an inpatient visit in 2019. A matched cohort of 514 patients who received either early (within 1 day of NPWT application) or late (within 2-7 days of NPWT application) NPWTi-d initiation was created using propensity scoring.
