Many instruments and techniques to reduce time and effort for deepithelialization have been described, but they are time-consuming and labor-intensive. The VersaJet Hydrosurgery System (Smith Nephew, Hull, United Kingdom) has gained widespread acceptance and use for fast, selective, and easy soft tissue debridement. The authors described the use of the VersaJet Hydrosurgery System for flap deepithelialization. Read More

The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy of an alternative debridement technology in the treatment of Gustilo & Anderson grade III A and III B open tibia fractures. The objective was to explore whether improvements to the debridement using tangential hydrosurgery (VERSAJET™ Plus Smith & Nephew) could reduce the number of debridement episodes and the days before closure. A pilot scale randomized controlled trial was conducted against conventional surgery. Read More
