Saws, Surgical, Bone, Pneumatic
Definition : Bone surgery saws driven by pneumatic power designed to cut bone and other hard tissue. These saws are typically small, handheld, powered instruments with a pneumatic motor; a mechanism to drive an oscillating, reciprocating, or sagittal blade; and a hose connected to the pressurized gas source. Pneumatic power bone surgery saws are smaller and quieter than electric saws, but they produce a larger amount of debris in the environment. They are used in orthopedic, cardiothoracic, and other surgical procedures.
