Saws, Surgical, Bone, Electric, Sagittal
Definition : Electric bone surgery saws designed to cut bone and other hard tissue using a serrated blade that oscillates at a very high speed in a plane that includes the axis of the machine (i.e., sagittal) without full rotation. These saws are typically small, handheld, powered instruments with an electric motor to drive the blade, an electric cable, and a detachable, toothed, flat blade. Electric bone surgery saws are used in orthopedic, cardiothoracic, and other surgical procedures to cut bone with minimal damage to the surrounding tissue.
