TECHNICAL AND FUNCTIONAL FEATURES
Cleaning and Suction of Surgical wounds
Surgical cleaning, in particular in the case of orthopaedic surgical wound, is mainly carried out by means of large syringes or high pressure lavage system.
The first method is certainly the most economical, the latter is rarely used due to its complex nature as well as the significant operating cost.
The SPRINK system
The SPRINK system was developed in order to assure wound cleaning throughout surgery.
The cleaning liquid is sprinkled using sterile air which can be adjusted using a pressure reducing valve.
Suction occurs through the vacuum of the suction unit on the reservoir fo intra operative blood recovery.
Through the optimized cleaning system even the smallest fragments of bones, which if overlooked can quickly lead to muscle calcification, are removed efficiently and carefully.
The presence of washing liquid reduces the haemolysis during the course of blood suction and a larger number of red blood cells can be collected, should blood recovery during surgery be necessary.
In addition, the use of pure cleaning solution, also allows disinfectant, antibiotics, bone and cement fragment to be removed completely.
