Postoperative infection and the presence of osteosynthetic material in human body pose a major problem for patients and operators. Previously, it was considered that osteosynthetic material must be removed, and only then the expected full infection recovery could occur. However, removal of osteosynthetic material in unhealed fractures complicates bone fracture healing, as well as infection recovery. Nowadays, it is indicated to place an external bone fixator and in case of soft tissue recovery access to reosteosynthesis. The negative pressure wound therapy has brought new opportunities for treatment of this type of infections without the need of osteosynthetic material removal. Direct and indirect effects of negative pressure wound therapy create optimal healing conditions. Local use of new materials, transforming powder (Altrazeal) and topical hemoglobin spray (Granulox), provide and improve physiological conditions for appropriate and safe healing.
