Surgical site infection, especially in high risk
abdominal and colorectal surgery, is a constant
threat to patients and hospitals

Lowering SSI rates, decreases the cost of care

Calculate your hospital's potential savings.

† Estimations for SSI Rate for each Patient Population are determined via several references.

‡ Total number of Colorectal Procedures is assumed to be 300. Number of Procedures in each Colorectal Subgroup is an estimated proportion of the Total Population based on several references.

§ Reduction in SSI is based on results from a clinical study.

The Cause

Wound contamination is the primary cause of SSI.

Nearly 50 percent of abdominal incisions are contaminated during surgery.10 Controlling that contamination is a constant challenge.

Current technology does not adequately support infection control efforts to eliminate contamination, creating critical gaps that leave patients vulnerable to infection.

Our Solution

Gain Control Over the Sources of SSI

Developed by surgeons and infection control experts, CleanCision is the first in a new class of advanced cleansing technologies designed to fight and defend against the most pervasive sources of surgical infection, enhancing current infection control bundles and and seamlessly integrating into surgical workflows.
