Stainless Steel Osteotomy Explained
Stainless steel osteotomes have a sharp blade that facilitates the cutting and reshaping of hard, compact bones, especially during osteotomy procedures. They come in various sizes that are compatible with different maxillofacial surgeries. Some have a small guard that minimizes soft tissue trauma, while others have rounded corners to preserve an intact mucoperichondrium. They are also available in straight, slightly curved, or strongly curved designs, allowing passage into narrow spaces.
The handles are made of surgical-grade high-impact surgical stainless steel that is durable and resistant to corrosion. They have a quick-release coupling that promotes ease of use with blade selection and exchange. They also feature a flat surface for easy gripping and are lightweight for maximum control during use. The handle is sterilized with ethylene oxide and packaged with the blade for safe and convenient storage.
The handle of a stainless steel osteotome is designed to be ergonomic and allow for greater control. It is shaped with horizontal ridges that run the handle’s length, providing surgeons with a secure grip to prevent finger strain. The handle also has rounded corners to minimize soft tissue trauma during use. The handle can be used with various blades, including flexible osteotomes, bayonet-style blades, and a slap hammer end that loosens the implant from cement during revision procedures. It can also be used with DePuy and Zimmer blades (DePuy and Zimmer are registered trademarks of those companies). In addition, stainless steel osteotomes can be used for sculpting and cutting hard, compact bone tissue in maxillofacial surgery procedures. This includes fracture repair and osteotomy.
An osteotome is a specialized surgical instrument that plastic surgeons use to cut, shape, and reshape hard, compact bone tissue. It also repairs fractured bones during maxillofacial surgeries, such as osteotomy. The blade of a stainless steel osteotome can come in straight and slightly or strongly curved patterns that allow the device to pass through narrow spaces easily. The tool is also available with a guard variation that helps minimize soft tissue trauma and preserve the mucoperichondrium of the nasal septum. It is manufactured using premium materials to ensure the best performance standards. As a result, this surgical instrument is sterile and highly durable.
Stainless steel osteotomes can be stored in the sterilization pouch provided with the device. The pouch has an easy-to-use locking mechanism that secures the osteotome for safe transport in a surgical setting. According to manufacturer and healthcare regulatory guidelines, these tools can be sterilized using other methods, such as chemical or autoclaving.
Black & Black Surgical’s Lambotte bone osteotome offers several benefits for maxillofacial surgeons performing nasal reconstruction procedures on delicate bones. This tool features a double-beveled blade with a sharp cutting edge, allowing physicians to cut precise bones. The handle is solid with horizontal ridges over its surface, allowing surgeons to grip the tool securely and prevent finger strain during use. In addition, a small guard is attached to the tip of the osteotome to minimize soft tissue trauma and help preserve the mucoperichondrium. This osteotome is also available in various sizes to match specific bone-cutting and shaping requirements.
