Debridement is the removal of dead or devitalized tissue and debris from a wound bed. It is considered a corner stone of routine medical care for non-healing acute and chronic wounds together with infection control and creating a moisture-balanced healing environment1. The overall goal of debridement is to transform the wound bed of non-healing wounds to that of an acute wound, and thus promote the progression of the natural healing process2, 3, 4.

Debridement may be achieved using different techniques. Autolytic, enzymatic, mechanical, surgical, sharp, biologic and chemical debridement have been described1, 5, 6. The choice of debridement technique is depending on the clinical status of the wound, general health of the patient and the skill and qualification of the health care personnel1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.


ChloraSolv has been developed to treat Infected Chronic Diabetic Foot Ulcers. To meet the needs to facilitate removal of necrotic tissue and biofilm preserving healthy, viable tissue during debridement.
