PHOENIX, AZ – July 2017- Surgeons and nurses asked and CureVentions listened. The newest post-operative vest, the CurVest Z, features easy access side zippers for effortless thoracotomy dressing changes.


The CurVest Z still comes equipped with everything that the traditional CurVest has: double adjustable shoulder straps, a frontal hook and eye closure with a padded zipper, a stay-put waist band, full torso compression, JP drain tube holes, dual keeper pockets, and fabric treated with SILVADUR™ antimicrobial to inhibit the growth of bacteria. However, the newly added option of full length side zippers on the CurVest Z makes those hard-to-reach thoracic wound dressing changes much simpler.

The zippered design is simply brilliance, coupling functionality and accessibility. One of the top complaints from hospital staff regarding post-op compression garments is that patients are often relatively immobile, causing dressing changes to be challenging and time consuming. That’s why the CureVentions team revisited the drawing board, establishing the CurVest Z.

The CurVest Z was designed to make dressing changes as convenient as possible without the hassle of full vest removal. Outfitted with additional side hook-and-eye closures as well, the compression remains that of medical grade and fits snug to the torso for guaranteed patient stability and security. Learn more at
