Saws, Surgical, Bone, Pneumatic, Reciprocating, Sternum

Definition : Reciprocating pneumatic bone surgery saws designed to cut the elongated flattened bone forming the middle part of the thorax (i.e., sternum). These saws are typically handheld, powered instruments with a pneumatic motor to drive a reciprocating blade and a hose connected to the pressurized gas source. Pneumatic-power bone surgery saws are smaller and less noisy than electric saws but produce a larger amount of debris. The cut is performed by the blade that reciprocates alternately along the sternum. Pneumatic sternum bone surgery saws are usually more powerful and run at a higher speed than standard reciprocating saws; they are used mainly in cardiothoracic procedures.
