A case series <p>Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) is extremely important in the treatment of difficult wounds in patients with proctological diseases, including patients with Crohn's colitis. Despite the many advantages of this therapy, it has some limitations, including the lack of bactericidal activity. Hence, NPWT is combined with antibacterial products. One of them is the gentamicin-collagen sponge, presented in the three cases described below. The combination of the gentamicin-collagen sponge with NPWT may be beneficial in difficult wounds with a high risk of infection, and also in patients with impaired wound healing.</p> Bartosz Jan Grzechulski Tomasz Banasiewicz Copyright (c) 2023 Bartosz Jan Grzechulski, Tomasz Banasiewicz 2023-05-15 2023-05-15 10 1 4 7 10.18487/npwtj.v10i1.69
