Why is it important?
The use of the ultrasonic debridement system makes a new contribution to the preparation of the wound bed, the first essential step in the healing process in DFU surgery. The device shows advantages in reducing debridement times, is effective and safe in preserving the vital tissue, with a low complication rate. The results of this study indicated a low bleeding, a decrease in postoperative wound infection levels and a better reconstructive outcome with a high rate of healing.
