Abstract

Wound debridement is an often-ignored area of wound care due to concerns regarding safety and the ability of clinicians to carry out what can be a delicate procedure. This article examines a series of case studies featuring a new selective method of mechanical debridement (Debrisoft®, Activa Healthcare). The paper presents the findings from 18 patients who were selected for a one-off treatment using this new method of debridement.
