The VERSAJET II hydrosurgery system enables a surgeon to precisely select, excise and evacuate nonviable tissue, bacteria and contaminants from wounds, burns and soft tissue injuries.
The Versajet II system uses a high-pressure stream of saline to optimize surgical debridement. The system enables a surgeon to precisely select, excise, and evacuate non-viable tissue, using a tissue-sparing technique. As the hand piece travels tangentially across the wound, the devices razor-thin saline jet removes necrotic tissue, bacteria, and debris sparing the surrounding viable tissue.
Offering precision and control, the Versajet II system quickly prepares a cleaner, more uniform wound bed than traditional modalities while simultaneously addressing multiple barriers to healing. This advanced hydrosurgery technology helps reduce time to closure, which may reduce overall treatment cost.1
The new Versajet II system was launched in the US in 2006. Currently there are 800 consoles placed in service in over 600 hospitals treating 40,000 patients a year. 95 of the top 100 hospitals use Versajet (US News & World Report) and is being used for plastic, general surgery, trauma, orthopedics, vascular, and burns.
Basic Clinical Applications of the Hydrosurgical System
- Skin graft preparation, decubitus ulcers
- Debridement of acute and chronic wounds of any type
- Burns, and other exfoliative disorders
Trauma and General Surgery
- Debridement of traumatic wounds, road rash, de-gloving injuries
- Debridement of pressure ulcers, contaminated wounds
- Debridement of burns
- Debridement of open fractures, osteomyelitis, soft tissue infections, and joint revisions
The Versajet II System Offers Cost Effectiveness and Value
- Requires fewer debridement procedures, which may improve hospital profitability
- Helps reduce time to closure, which may shorten hospital stay
- Removes bacteria of help reduce the risk of infection
- Minimizes procedure time, thereby increasing block able OR time
- Uses fewer instruments and supplies, potentially reducing cost per procedure.
