It may be a stretch to say that a clean wound is a happy wound. But a new study finds that debridement appears to at least speed up the healing process.

Frequent debridement encourages rapid wound healing, researchers find

Debridement appears to dramatically speed up the wound healing process, according to recently published research. On average, wounds were cleaned twice through debridement, which is the removal of necrotic tissue and other foreign substances. Wounds that were debrided more frequently generally healed faster, and much faster in the cases of certain types of wounds, the researchers discovered.
