Figure 2 Pulsed lavage application of severe burns. (A) A 49-year-old male patient with a 60% total burn surface area (TBSA) burn. The surgical procedure was performed on the sixth day after the burn, during which 40% TBSA of full-thickness burn eschar was found on both lower extremities before the operation. (B) The wounds of both lower extremities were excised to the level of the normal adipose tissue or the fascia, and electrocoagulation or ligation hemostasis methods were applied after aggressive excision. (C) The pulsed irrigator was applied to rinse the wound surface with flexible angles. (D) The stamped autograft method was used to cover the wound, according to the condition of the wounds.
