The use of hydrosurgery debridement in penetrated wounds and deep wounds with narrow opening

Main Article Content

Att Nitiphon, MD

Abstract

The clinical manifestation of a penetrated wound is a narrow opening with a deep sinus tract or tunnel into the body. It is difficult to perform sufficient wound debridement by traditional surgery. An encouraging advancement in surgical technology is the effective Versajet™ hydrosurgery system.1 Its small cutting surface and fine control is especially useful for the “difficult to access areas”, such as on hands.
