B.Braun Medical Release: New White Paper Discusses the Precision and Efficiency the BoneScalpelâ„¢ Ultrasonic Bone Cutting System Offers Neurosurgical and Orthopaedic Surgeons


4/19/2012 12:33:40 PM

CENTER VALLEY, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--According to the American Association of Neurological Surgeons (AANS), over 320,000 spinal procedures out of some 550,000, or 58%, require some type of bone cutting.1 Traditionally, bone removal in spinal surgeries has been performed by hand instruments or cutting burrs that, by virtue of their mechanism of action, pose risks of dural and neural injury, the Aesculap ultrasonic osteotome, BoneScalpel, reduces these risks. Additionally, the BoneScalpel reduces bone bleeding, produces precise cuts as narrow as approximately 0.5 mm, and provides the surgeon an alternate surgical technique; potentially increasing efficiency and reducing O.R. time. A white paper, titled BoneScalpelâ„¢ Ultrasonic Bone Cutting System: Neurosurgical and Orthopaedic Applications, is now available that discusses the technology behind the BoneScalpel as well as successful clinical trials.
