DESIGNED TO BE FLEXIBLE
PIEZOSURGERY® flex by Mectron is an ultrasonic surgical system specifically designed to be efficient, versatile and user-friendly device offering safety and precision in all situations.
THE RIGHT BALANCE BETWEEN POWER AND PRECISION
Quick and effective cutting action, soft tissue protection, and improved intra-operative control.
Thinner, more precise osteotomies, and minimal bone sacrifice along the whole depth of cut.
NEW ERA IN BONE SURGERY
PIEZOSURGERY® opened a new era of bone surgery safety and precision thanks to ultrasonic micro-vibrations.
PIEZOSURGERY® technology guarantees cutting effectiveness by automatically monitoring and adjusting the tuning of the vibration frequency for each insert.
EASY TO HANDLE
Touch screen display, external irrigation system, 3m handpiece cord, and 5m power cord make the PIEZOSURGERY® flex easy to handle in the OR.
micro-vibrations generate an effective cutting action on mineralized tissue, reducing the risk of soft tissue damage
micro-vibrations allow perfect control of the cutting action, resulting in max precision and minimal bone sacrifice
the cavitation effect reduces the risk of bone necrosis and helps create a blood-free field
ultrasonic micro-vibrations reduce inflammatory cells on the bone surface and promote osteoblast production, promoting quicker healing and an improved outcomes
Comparative studies have demonstrated both the intraoperative advantages and postoperative benefits of the PIEZOSURGERY® device.
The inflammatory cells were more numerous in samples obtained from the drilled sites (Fig. 1). Neo-osteogenesis was quantified by considering the absolute number of osteoblasts per high-power field (mean of 10 fields) in osteo-genetic areas; it was consistently more active in the bone samples from the implant sites prepared using the piezoelectric bone surgery technique (Fig. 2).

In the group A, the lower post-operative pain highlights the absence of a thermal effect on the surface cut and shows a better healing process.
