Clinical study: microwater jet vs. curette
Our randomized multicenter trial with David G. Armstrong,DPM, MD, PhD1,Marissa J. Carter, PhD, MA, Charles M. Zelen,DPM, FACFAS,FACFAOM has reached the halfway point! We look forward to seeing the final results.
Conclusion: The Micro Water Jet device was able to close statistically significantly more refractory DFUs over 16 weeks, with a significant difference in wound area reduction should also be noted. These early data show promise that better debridement tools can improve wound closure and reduce complications and infections associated with diabetic foot. Further larger randomized controlled trials are needed to confirm these results.
