Definition : Saws designed to cut plaster and/or synthetic (e.g., fiberglass, polyester cloth impregnated with resin) casts. Cast saws are available as handheld, manual instruments with a serrated blade and a handle or, less frequently, as stationary, powered (e.g., electric, pneumatic) instruments that can drive serrated blades. Cast saws are used to cut casts using dedicated plaster or fiberglass blades for cast removal, creation of a hinged cast, or to open a window in the cast to view underlying tissue.
