Record ID 32018004254
Authors' objectives: To evaluate the efficacy, safety, cost-effectiveness and organisational issue related to Versajet hydrosurgery system for debridement.
Authors' results and conclusions: There was substantial evidence on Versajet hydrosurgery system for debridement. However, some studies have high risk of bias due to inappropriate randomisation sequence generation and selective measurement of the outcome, hence varying the quality of the included trials. Nevertheless, the evidence showed that Versajet may reduce the healing and operative time to treatment, improve quality of scar or dermal plane efficacy, and optimise the need for grafting. The Versajet hydrosurgery system may reduce the blood loss and transfusion, and decrease the infection rate. Even though there was one serious adverse event and some mild or moderate adverse events were reported, none of them were related to Versajet hydrosurgery system. The latest version of Versajet hydrosurgery system had received 510(k) from United States Food and Drug Administration and was Conformité Européenne (CE) marked in 2011 before launched in 2012. The hydrosurgery system also had been approved by Medical Device Authority Malaysia in 2018. There was no significant difference between the two groups in terms of cost of the first operative procedure, cost of surgical procedures during the study, cost of study treatment or cost to achieve stable wound closure. Approximately, the price for one set of the latest version of Versajet hydrosurgery system was USD$8,478.66
Authors' recommendations: Versajet hydrosurgery system may be used as an option for wound debridement.
