This discovery provides a closure device and method to close the abdomen between surgical procedures, or following a traumatic event, and maintains a normal physiological tension on the fascia to prevent undue retraction.  


This device prevents fascial trauma from repeated operations, allows the abdomen to expand as needed to prevent renal, pulmonary and cardiac failure, and provides specific tension to slowly approximate the fascia once the inflammatory process has resolved. This device can be used with chronic open abdominal wounds, chronic open pressure sores, and fasciotomy sites. 


This device can be coupled with the current wound vac device system to decrease wound closure times. 


During times of stress the device allows the abdominal compartment to expand as needed to maintain normal intra-abdominal pressure.
