Saws

Definition : Instruments designed to cut objects and tissue using one or more thin metal blades with a serrated edge. Saws are single-piece, handheld, manual instruments including the blade and a handle or, less frequently, stationary, powered (e.g., electrical, pneumatic) instruments with a combination of a driving mechanism and appropriate blades; power saws may include other attachments. Dedicated saws and blades are available according to the object or tissue to be cut and the procedure to be performed (e.g., surgery, cast cutting, amputation, postmortem).
