Unique Benefits of the real PIEZOSURGERY®

Where burs and saws don’t discriminate between mineralized and soft tissues, PIEZOSURGERY® provides surgeons with greater control and safety.

Maximize Surgical Precision

Cut Bone, Not Soft Tissue

Cut Bone, Not Soft Tissue

PIEZOSURGERY®’s patented dual wave technology is designed to efficiently cut bone while preserving soft tissues, even in the case of accidental contact.  Where burs and saws don’t discriminate between mineralized and soft tissues, PIEZOSURGERY® provides surgeons with greater control and safety.  Whether you are working in proximity to nerves, mucosa or other delicate structures, you can count on PIEZOSURGERY® to allow you to cut only what you want.

 

Direct exposure of a peripheral nerve to PIEZOSURGERY®, even in the worst-case scenarios, did not dissect the nerve […]; the perineurium of the nerve remained intact even after nerve contact at peak force, thus enhancing the potential for functional recovery. PIEZOSURGERY ® ’s […] safety margins are greater than those when using [conventional] instruments that are typically operated at higher force (e.g., bur) or are likely to cut the nerve on direct contact (e.g., oscillating saw).Schaeren et al, J Oral Maxillofac Surg. 2008; 66(3):593-596
PIEZOSURGERY® definitely enhances handling of delicate structures in the oral and maxillofacial region. Concerning osteotomies of thin and fragile bones, application of ultrasound is assessed to be superior to other mechanical instruments, because of easy handling, efficient bone ablation and minimal accidental harm to adjacent soft tissue structures..” Stübinger, Journal of oral and Maxillofacial Surgery 2007 Sep;65(9):39.e7-39.e8
Maximum Intraoperative Visibility

When the irrigation fluid comes in contact with a vibrating insert tip, it is converted in a microspray that leads to hemostasis at the surgical site, providing the surgeon with maximum visibility during surgery.  When the cutting action stops, bleeding resumes, starting the healing process right away. Additionally, the cavitation effect cools down the surgical site and has a caustic effect on anaerobic bacteria.

Cellular and Biomolecular Analyses

Cellular and Biomolecular Analyses

Several clinical and histological studies have shown that PIEZOSURGERY® is superior to saws and burs not only in terms of intra-operative precision and safety, but also in regard to tissue healing. When a surgeon uses PIEZOSURGERY® instead of conventional instruments, there is a significant acceleration in the healing response: inflammation is more controlled, there is a significant early increase in bone morphogenetic proteins (BMPs) levels, and faster new bone formation.

Because PIEZOSURGERY® respects soft tissues and reduces intra-operative bleeding, the overall iatrogenic trauma is reduced, with immediate, tangible patient benefits. Patients don’t loose as much blood, don’t experience as much post-operative swelling, and overall report reduced discomfort associated with the surgical procedure.

PIEZOSURGERY® induces less trauma and promotes faster bone healing, as indicated by:
  • Lower numbers of inflammatory cells
  • Greater presence of osteoblasts at the surgical site
  • Increased levels of TGF and BMP
  • Increased levels of proinflammatory cytokines (bone remodeling)
