HOW TO USE THE DAVIES® SKIN GRAFT MESHER

Only place individual Mesh boards on the insertion tray, one after the other. For long skin grafts, insert mesh boards sequentially.

  • Press the skin graft onto the mesh board (10), using fine tweezers, directly behind the cut-in line.
  • Position the required mesh board 10, with the grooved surface facing up, on insertion tray (12).
  • Position the skin graft on mesh board (10).
  • Push mesh board (10) under cutting roller (2) until the cutting roller engages.
  • Turn the ratchet handle (9) anticlockwise. The mesh board (10) is transported.
  • Keep turning ratchet handle (9) until the complete mesh board (10) is in position on removal tray (19). This completes the processing of the skin graft.
  • The skin graft can be lifted off mesh board as soon as it has been cut into by the cutting roller.

CLEANING & STERILISING

The Mesh boards are ETO sterilized single use products. These products must not be steam-sterilized and are intended for single use only.

The skin graft mesher can be sterilized in its sterilisation tray:

  • Sterilise the mesher immediately after cleaning.
  • Store the mesher in a suitable wire basket.

Sterilize with steam, taking note of the following:

Carry out steam sterilisation via an approved steam sterilisation procedure (e.g. steriliser in conformance with EN 285/ANSI/AAMI/ISO 11134-1993, ANSI/AAMI ST46-1983 and validated in conformance with EN 554/ISO 13683).

In the fractioned vacuum process, the sterilization must be performed using the 134 °C / 2 bar program with a minimum holding time of 5 minutes.
