Abstract

In Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome surgery is reserved for conditions which result in hemodynamic instability and sepsis. We report a pediatric patient with Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome and life-threatening wound sepsis responding to serial surgical débridements and application of the Vacuum-Assisted Closure device. The device was found to be an effective adjunct to the treatment algorithm.
