Title: ELECTROSURGICAL DEVICE FOR CHRONIC WOUND TREATMENT
Abstract:
The present invention relates to an electrosurgical system including an electrosurgical device to be delivered to a wound site to provide chronic wound treatment. The device can be used during a wound care procedure to provide targeted energy at a wound site for reducing the accumulation of biofilm present and removing necrotic tissue and debris so as to promote, stimulate, and stabilize the wound healing process. The device can further be used during a surgical procedure, such as preparation for an orthopedic implant, in which the device is configured to selectively coagulate one or more pockets prepared within bone tissue for holding an implant so as to prevent or stop fluid accumulation (e.g., blood from vessel(s)) as a result of the implant preparation.
