Best Answer

The depth of the debridement. An selective debridement involves removalof bioburden, slough, crust, and nonviable tissue. An excisional debridement involves utilizing a sharps/surgical instrument in a level of debridement that extends through the subcutaneous tissue. If the depth of the debridement does not extend through the subcutaneous tissue, it is not considered to be an excisional debridement. Typically, an excisional debridement may be supported with wound measurements that are larger post-debridement than pre-debridement.
