  • Surgical site infections (SSIs) account for 22%-36% of all healthcare-associated infections (HAIs).1,2
  • Patients with an SSI are 6X more likely to have a 30-day readmission.3
  • The average added cost from SSIs is $38,656.4
  • A patient who develops an SSI has on average a 9.58 day longer hospital stay.4
  • A patient who develops an SSI has on average a 2.2X longer ICU stay.3

3M™ Prevena™ 125 and 3M™ Prevena™ Plus 125 Therapy Units manage the environment of closed surgical incisions and remove fluid away from the surgical incision via the application of -125mmHg continuous negative pressure. When used with legally marketed compatible dressings, Prevena 125 and Prevena Plus 125 Therapy Units are intended to aid in reducing the incidence of seroma and, in patients at risk for post-operative infections, aid in reducing the incidence of superficial surgical site infection in Class I and II wounds.

The effectiveness of Prevena Therapy in reducing the incidence of SSIs and seroma in all surgical procedures and populations has not been demonstrated. See full indications for use and limitations at
