Fasciotens® Pediatric

Like in adults, Fasciotens presents a new development.

Defined and controlled tension can be placed on the abdominal wall directly after initial treatment. The abdominal wall is stretched with tension directed anteriorly, and the abdominal cavity is thus increased. Positioning of newborns has been made possible for the first time via a cradle fixture with constant directional traction.

Medical Problem

  • Open abdomen in cases of gastroschisis or large omphalocele
  • Primary closure of the abdominal wall is usually impossible
  • Abdominal space is relatively too small
  • Currently, controlled and quantified tension on the abdominal wall is impossible
  • Supine position is inevitable
