A manifold list of advantages and benefits, which appear during and after surgery
Maximum safety for surgeons and patients. Reduced risk of damaging soft tissues (dura, nerves and vessels).
Maximum surgical precision and intra-operative tactile sensation. Minimal bone loss through the cutting depth
Maximum intra-operative visibility. Blood-free surgical site.
Better and faster bone healing
Reduced the postoperative swelling and discomfort.
Osteotomy tissue sections, Gomori trichrome stain. Histomorphometric analysis performed 15 days after osteotomy with bone bur (Bb), Piezosurgery® medical device (Pm) and the new Piezosurgery® plus device (Pp) shows that the thickness (red dotted line) of the osteotomy (between the 2 blue dotted lines) is significantly higher in Bb with respect to Pm and Pp.
BV/TV % values. The area of newly deposited bone (BV) with respect to the total area (TV) of the osteotomy (expressed as %) is higher with Pm and Pp than with Bb, this difference is not statistically significant.
Maximum efficiency, maximum control, maximum performance - you name it: PIEZOSURGERY® plus is the device for everyone who wants everything - and can be used for nearly all surgeries, from recontructive to thoracic, from maxillofacial to neurosurgery.
Thanks to innovative features like its two different channels with different handpieces, it provides you with perfect results in nearly every surgical field.
PIEZOSURGERY® plus is provided with APC (Automatic Precision Control) software, which guarantees maximum safety. The software automatically recognizes deviations from normal functioning and stops the device in less than 150 ms. The error message on the screen allows for easy restoration of operating conditions. Two independent handpieces are provided, allowing for greater flexibility and performance during surgery.
PIEZOSURGERY® plus is provided with smart software. For each surgical tip, the software automatically sets the optimal working settings. Power and irrigation levels can also be adjusted manually depending on the surgical needs.
The minimal postoperative pain appears remarkable; in the same direction, the first impression about the rapidity of recovery appears noteworthy: it results in a reduced necessity of postoperative medications, due to a lesser production of granulation tissue and, consequently, to the possibility to better foresee the stabilized result with important anatomical and functional implications.
Piezosurgery proved to be a useful and safe technique for selective bone cutting and removal of osteophytes with preservation of neuronal and soft tissue in ACDF. In particular, the angled inserts were effective in cutting bone spurs behind the adjacent vertebra which cannot be reached with conventional rotating burs.
PS allows easy, safe and precise bone cutting with no injury to neurovascular tissue, such as dura, transverse or signoid sinus, brain, and cranial nerves. No complications were noted during the procedure. Due to the adsence of rotating power near neurovascular structures the drilling process was easy and confortable for the surgeon.
Piezosurgery seems suitable to perform precise thin osteotomies while limiting damage to the bone itself and to the underlying delicate structures even in the case of unintentional contact. These advantages make the piezoelectric bonescalpel a particularly attractive instrument in neurosurgery.
Piezoelectric osteotomy reduced surgical time, blood loss, and inferior alveolar nerve injury in bimaxillary osteotomy. Absence of macrovibrations makes the instrument more manageable and easy to use and allows greater intraoperative control with higher safety in cutting in difficult anatomical regions.
