Subjects and Methods: Whole of 30 subjects were incorporated in the research. The included subjects were divided into two groups: Group 1 included subjects were treated with conventional dressings and in group 2 the included subjects were treated with VAC dressings. The subjects were informed about the study procedure and the written informed consent were obtained prior to the start of study. Results: Decrease in Wound Size. There was noteworthy diminish in wound size from day 0 to day 8 in VAC group in contrast to saline-wet-to-moist group. There was noteworthy reduce in the bacterial growth in the VAC group as compared to saline-wetto-moist group. Conclusion: VAC therapy is not the answer for all wounds; however, it can make a significant difference in many cases. VAC is a helpful instrument in poignant a wound to a point where more conventional dressings or more easy surgical reconstructive methods can be utilized.
