Suction Curettage

A superficial bone infection will weaken your bone structure and cause severe fractures or infections in other areas. A significant degree of bone healing will usually involve suction curettage, which always offers a better quality of graft healing. Let’s have a deeper look at suction curettage as a bone graft procedure.

What is suction curettage?

Curettage is a standard orthopedic treatment that requires removing elements or filling the affected bone area with a substitute to restore normal function. Several studies prove that bone grafting benefits are expected for the following issues:

  • Infections
  • Pulmonary embolism
  • Cellulitis
  • Paresthesia

Some people argue that curettage does not need bone filling, but we have observed that the treatment is always subjective. Hence, the medical practitioner must look at everything involved before administering treatment.

Curettage treatment will usually affect the function and mechanical operation of the bones, so it is essential that one only uses devices and materials that fit the exact bone defect.

How does it work?

Curettage is mainly a mechanical process that removes infected bone areas through a small incision. The doctor will move the suction back and forth on the affected area over a short time to pull out the targeted materials. They will then examine it with another instrument or an exam like the X-ray to make sure they have removed every affected bone. After some weeks, it is also necessary to arrange a follow-up exam to ensure the entire autogenous bone harvesting and grafting process is successful.

A dental bone harvesting purpose curettage process usually begins by drilling a couple of holes into the bone and making a window into the area with a chisel or another relevant tool. The entire process tends to occur under the X-ray control, which ensures the removal of the whole affected area before filling with PMCC.

Curettage will usually be autologous or allogenic, which means performing the process on the iliac rest or the spinal area. There are only two significant ways to ensure a safe and successful process; work with a skilled practitioner and use a high-value system with proven benefits. Do not mind the minor side effects that follow the process because you will generally have all the medical assistance and medication to support recovery.

What is the success rate of suction curettage?

The procedure is the most common for surgical treatments to resolve tumors and fill in defect allograft bone issues. Several studies show that it has the lowest reoccurrence rate and minimal complication in comparison to other methods. The clinical results of using a suction curettage show that it is an exemplary process for many bone infections, cysts, tumors, and physical dysfunctions.

The conclusion is that a curettage will correct all these different issues and offer a stable ground for the bone to reconstruct itself to total health. Our harvesting device has different devices and techniques for all kinds of procedures on both children and adults. We recommend that doctors look at all the details of bone graft types, to know how best they can optimize it for the best results with minimal incisions. Contact us online for more information.
