FARMINGDALE, N.Y., April 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Misonix, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSON), an international ultrasonic surgical device company that designs, manufactures and markets innovative therapeutic ultrasonic instruments for spine surgery, neurosurgery and other surgical specialties, today announced the launch of its newest addition to the SonicOne® platform, SonicVac™. This is the first time that the removal of debris and infected tissues is combined with ultrasonic wound debridement.
Recently released data demonstrated that ultrasonic wound debridement has value in preparing for grafting and in reducing bacterial load to aid wound healing. The addition of vacuum assistance increases the SonicOne O.R.'s ability to remove disrupted debris from the wound. Data released at Diabetic Limb Salvage ("DLS") Conference showed 134% more irrigate was captured during the use of SonicVac.
"The treatment of chronic wounds is a significant global healthcare problem," said Dr. Mark S. Granick, Professor and Chief, Division of Plastic Surgery, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. "SonicVac represents an important technological development in treating chronic wounds. SonicOne with SonicVac addresses the need to disrupt and remove unhealthy cells, layer-by-layer, from the wound allowing for maximum preservation of surrounding healthy tissue. This gives the patient's wound the best opportunity to heal."
Scott Ludecker, Senior Vice President of Global Sales & Marketing, commented, "The addition of SonicVac further strengthens the growing acceptance of SonicOne O.R. in the wound care marketplace. This, the second product launch in the last twelve months for the SonicOne O.R. platform, illustrates our commitment to bringing new innovative solutions to the surgeons treating this patient population. We will continue working with our global opinion leading surgeon customers to innovate around our SonicOne O.R. platform technologies wherever possible."
