The HVS is a postoperative wound drainage system. The constant vacuum in combination with a high suction force provides active adhesion formation between healing surfaces, removes large volumes of fluid quickly and improves proper flap apposition.
Total Hip Replacement, mastectomy
HVS is indicated for all surgeries and can be ideal for total hip replacement where drains are placed deep inside the surgical wound and proper wound approximation is essential. For mastectomy it can be ideal to remove seroma fast and provide maximal drainage.
