This practice is useful for removing pathogenic bacteria, foreign material, bone fragments, blood and more. Surgical irrigation of the wound is commonly performed through syringes and/or high pressure washing systems.
Syringes have a very low washing pressure and therefore must be frequently refilled. Irrigation and debridement performed with high-pressure washing system can cause bacterial migration and soft tissue and bone damage.
THE SPRINK SYSTEM
The SPRINK system is designed to assure a safety washing through a controlled washing force. Literature reports that thefrequent surgical wound washing, associated with continuous aspiration, helps to keep the operative field clean and to eliminate pathogens, reducing the risk of infection.
