Musibah menimpa Anggi, pria berusia 30 tahun yang tinggal di Bandung. Kaca pecah menimpanya sehingga Anggi tubuhnya bersimbah darah dan wajahnya pucat. Kemudian, ia segera dibawa ke ruang gawat darurat di rumah sakit. Anggi mengalami luka terbuka berdarah pada area antebrakhial karena kena kaca, yaitu pada tangan dan lengan bawahnya.
Dokter menyatakan bahwa kondisi yang dialami Anggi meliputi vulnus laceratum, ruptur pada tendon, ruptur pada vena medianus, serta ruptur pada arteri ulnaris. Vulnus laceratum adalah terjadinya gangguan kontinuitas suatu jaringan sehingga terjadi pemisahan jaringan yang semula normal kemudian luka robek terjadi akibat kekerasan yang hebat sehingga memutuskan jaringan. Adapun ruptur adalah robek atau koyaknya jaringan secara paksa. Ruptur tendon adalah robek, pecah atau terputusnya tendon yang diakibatkan karena tarikan yang melebihi kekuatan tendon. Tendon adalah struktur dalam tubuh yang menghubungkan otot ke tulang.
Kemudian, tindakan debridement dan tendon repair dilakukan terhadap Anggi. Biaya yang dibutuhkan untuk tindakan medis tersebut mencapai belasan juta rupiah. Anggi sudah berbulan-bulan menunggak iuran BPJS sehingga ia tidak dapat menggunakannya untuk membayar biaya rumah sakit, sedangkan ia sangat membutuhkan tindakan segera. Keluarganya pun tidak dapat membantu banyak. Anggi adalah seorang office boy dengan penghasilan kecil dan istrinya seorang buruh cuci. Mereka kesulitan untuk membayar biaya perawatan Anggi.

Tendon repair refers to the surgical repair of damaged or torn tendons, which are cord-like structures made of strong fibrous connective tissue that connect muscles to bones. The shoulder, elbow, knee, and ankle joints are the most commonly affected by tendon injuries.
The goal of tendon repair is to restore the normal function of joints or their surrounding tissues following a tendon laceration.
Debridement is the process of removing unhealthy tissue from the body. The tissue may be necrotic (dead), infected, damaged, contaminated or there may be a foreign body in the tissue.
Why Debridement Is Done
For example, a patient has a serious wound that is infected and is not getting better with antibiotics and wound care. The wound is getting larger, the patient is getting sicker, and without better control of the infection, the patient could be in a life-threatening situation. For this patient, surgically cleaning the wound and removing some of the dead and infected tissue may mean that the body can fight the infection and heal the wound more easily. With the dead tissue removed, the healthy tissue that remains is more likely to remain healthy and not become infected.
Types of Debridement
A wide variety of debridement techniques are used in medicine, and for a severe wound or a wound that has difficulty healing, multiple types of these treatments may be used. For example, a serious wound with necrotic (dying) tissue may first be treated with surgical debridement but may have enzymatic and mechanical debridement in the following weeks.
- Surgical Debridement: This is the process of removing damaged or dying tissue surgically. In this case, a surgeon visually inspects the tissue, determines what tissue is viable, and removes the tissue that is not salvageable. The bad tissue is literally being cut away using a sharp instrument or heat, with the surgeon trying to preserve as much good tissue as possible.
- Autolytic Debridement: This is the body's own process of getting rid of dead tissue and keeping healthy tissue. This process may be assisted by a dressing or wound care, but this type of debridement is essentially standing back and allowing the body to heal itself.
- Enzymatic Debridement: This type of debridement uses enzyme solutions or ointments to treat the tissue. Typically, the solution or ointment is combined with a dressing that is changed regularly, which softens the tissue and allows for the bad tissue to be removed when the dressing is removed.
- Mechanical Debridement: This form of debridement is the removal of tissue using a dressing that is changed regularly. The dressing commonly referred to as a wet to dry dressing, consists of moist gauze being applied to a wound that requires debridement, which is then covered with a sterile bandage. After a set period of time, the dressing will dry out, which allows the tissue to adhere to the gauze. When the dressing is removed, the tissue that adhered to the gauze is also removed. This type of debridement is also referred to as "non-selective debridement" as both healthy and unhealthy tissue can be removed with this process.
- Maggot Debridement: This type of debridement uses maggots, or fly larva, that is raised in a sterile environment to debride wounds. The maggots are placed on a wound, typically under a loose bandage, where they eat dead or dying tissue. Maggots are a selective type of debridement, meaning they only consume unhealthy tissue, leaving the healthy tissue undamaged.
- Hydrotherapy (Mechanical) Debridement: Hydrotherapy, or pressurized water, is most commonly used to debride burn wounds. A non-selective form of debridement, this treatment can be very painful, depending upon the nature of the wounds.
