Misonix has released its newly-developed 25mm BoneScalpel blade.
Misonix says that its new 25mm BoneScalpel blade offers surgeons the tool to access previously unreachable anatomy as well as facilitates the cutting and removal of larger boney structures. “We specifically developed the new 25mm blade in response to our surgeon customers’ needs to enable the completion of procedures not previously possible,” said Michael A McManus, Jr, president and chief executive officer of Misonix.
The BoneScalpel is an ultrasonic bone-cutting instrument that provides surgeons a clean, controlled bone incision and removal that is also soft-tissue sparing. “I have used the BoneScalpel extensively over the past several years and I view this technology as a vital piece of equipment for both standard laminectomies and more extensive osteotomies,” said Paul J Holman, director, Neurosurgical Spine Center, Houston Methodist Department of Neurosurgery, Houston, USA. “The BoneScalpel allows for rapid, safe removal of bone with a reduction in bleeding.”
Holman continued, “The new 25mm blade is an important addition to the choice of available tips. The extra length allows me to use the BoneScalpel for rapid bone removal during complex procedures such as pedicle subtraction osteotomies and vertebrectomies. The amount of local bone that is retained for fusion by using the BoneScalpel is also quite remarkable.”
