Now more than ever, managing patient care requires resourcefulness and efficiency. Shortening patient stays, reducing readmissions, and preventing complications are vital to the management of the operating room and healthcare facilities. 3M™ Prevena™ Therapy can help improve outcomes for you, your patients, and your practice beyond the incision site.


New data from a randomized controlled trial with at-risk patients further affrms that Prevena Therapy significantly reduces the risk of 90-day surgical site complications (SSCs) and readmissions, when compared with the current standard of care (SOC).

  • A 4 and an x indicating four times.

    4x reduction in 90-day Surgical Site Complications (SSCs). 1,2

  • A 3 and an x indicating three times.

    3x reduction in readmission rates.1,3

    (p=0.0208)
