Power Systems, Electromechanical, Surgery, Neurosurgery/Small Bones

Definition : Power systems designed for use as a source of electric and/or mechanical power to instruments and/or other powered devices used in neurosurgery and small bone surgery. These systems usually consist of a main unit that provides electric and/or mechanical power using a motor to detachable handpieces appropriate to drive dedicated instruments (e.g., saws, burs, blades, drills, debriders, liposuction); a power switch (e.g., a foot-control unit), a line cord, and a panel for handpiece/instrument connection. Most systems have pumps used for irrigation and/or cooling; some also can provide pneumatic and/or ultrasonic power. Orthopedic and plastic surgery power systems are used in a variety of neurosurgery and small bone (e.g., spine) surgical procedures.
