Abstract

Topical application and infiltration of bone marrow is used in the treatment of various types of chronic/non-healing wounds. Currently available methods for application of bone marrow include injectable or irrigation by syringe but have the limitation of inadequate coverage of surface area requiring large amount of bone marrow. To improve the application over large surface of wound area with minimum amount of bone marrow we have designed indigenously made spray device. This article highlights the application of this device in one of the patient in plastic surgery. This is an easily prepared cost effective device.
