The complex wound defect always needs a long-term clinical intervention and flap coverage, because of massive soft tissue loss with continuous sepsis and poorest granulation tissue with the impair healing process. Here, we report a 22-year-old male had suffered a work-related High Voltage Electrical Burn (HVEB), result in extensive deep tissue damage (about 12% visible total body surface area burns with a 3rd to 4th degree) with abdominal wall complex defect. A series of surgical operations and medical care's had taken by the traumatic team, including Negative Pressure Wound Therapy (NPWT) with an autologous stem cell therapy, e.g., isolated from the iliac bone marrow aspirate and injection. Our results suggested that the NPWT with stem cell treatment is successful, the complex wound defect is covered in observation time and wound healing is satisfactory.
