Learn about how ABThera™ Open Abdomen System helped one millworker continue his life.
In January 2010, Oliver Glenn, a millworker in Port Huron, Michigan, was working at a construction site when he fell 35 feet and landed on a beam. He developed abdominal compartment syndrome. His surgeons applied KCI's ABThera™ Open Abdomen System and, to their surprise, Mr. Glenn was able to be closed up within 24 hours of being placed on the ABThera™ System. Mr. Glenn has expressed how grateful he is to KCI for creating the ABThera™ Open Abdomen System because without it, he believes he might not have seen his wife or kids again.
