Product Features

Simple, Effective, Versatile

ViClean is a dual-ring and fixed-height design to added incision protection and retraction without the need to adjust excess material in the surgical site.

The wound protector is ideal for thyroid, thoracic, breast, or any other surgeries. ViClean is a single-use device, made of silica gel and available in small, medium, large, and x-large.

Intelligent Design

Once inserted the ViClean creates a flexible 360° expansion for optimal visualization of the surgical site. The dual-ring shape creates a uniform retraction for an atraumatic hold.

The design can reduce the need for hand-held retraction and protects the incision from potential trauma caused by retractors and other surgical devices.

Surgical Site Protection

The “bucket” like channel conforms to the incision site, wrapping the tissue to prevent bleeding, maintain moisture, and keeps the incision clean. The brim-shaped outer ring protects the wound and the anterior portion of the skin.

Routine use of fixed-height wound protectors is recommended to protect the incision site and surrounding tissue from injury and to reduce superficial infections in the patients2.

Frequently Asked Questions

ViClean is a fixed height, dual-ring wound protector that can reduce the risk of superficial SSI1 and promotes faster healing. During surgery the channel-like design retains an elasticity that forms a self-retracting barrier that helps maintain the skin’s natural moisture, prevents bleeding, and protects the incision and surrounding tissue from damage/instrument injury. The semi-transparent device is easy to use and also aids in maximizing the surgical field. Surgical site infections can have a dangerous and prolonged impact on patient’s treatments, outcomes, and quality of life, in addition to producing a significant financial burden to the patient and hospital3.
