Orthopedic Cement/Bone Cutting/Extraction Systems, Powered Drilling
Definition : Systems designed for cutting, removal, and extraction of bone and/or orthopedic acrylic cement (typically polymethyl methacrylate [PMMA]) from a previously implanted prosthesis using high-speed powered drills during orthopedic procedures. These systems typically consist of dedicated electric or pneumatic high-speed rotary handpieces with dedicated drills, burs, and saws; they may also include irrigation devices and vacuum devices with appropriate suction tubes and filters to extract cement/bone fragments. Powered drilling orthopedic bone and cement cutting and extraction systems are used to cut and remove bone fragments during orthopedic procedures (e.g., prosthesis implantation) and to remove cement (e.g., mantle, plug) during the removal of old prostheses in revision surgery (e.g., replacement) of hip, knee, and other cemented orthopedic prostheses.
