The method and device of the present invention for ultrasound wound treatment includes a transducer to produce ultrasonic waves. The ultrasonic transducer has tip with the distal end (radiation surface). A liquid is directed to the radiation surface through central orifice or separate tube wherein an directed atomized particle spray of the liquid is created upon contact of the liquid with the radiation surface. The spray directed to the wound from at least 0.1 inches transmits ultrasound waves trough particles and has an irrigation, mechanical cleansing,...
1. A method for treating a wound comprising the steps of:providing a transducer having a distal radiation surface arranged a distance from the surface of the wound for emitting ultrasonic energy and defining an orifice therethrough, an inner surface of the orifice includes at least one of a groove and a ring; introducing a fluid to the distal radiation surface via the orifice to produce a spray; and delivering the emitted ultrasonic energy to the wound through the spray, wherein the ultrasonic energy penetrates the wound tissue to a beneficial depth to p...
