Zimmer Holdings, a developer of spinal and dental implants, has launched its Universal Power System and STABLECUT line of surgical saw blades.
The Universal Power System includes a single, comprehensive large bone surgical power system, which can be configured for reaming, drilling and sawing with the STABLECUT surgical saw blades.
STABLECUT surgical saw blades feature a ground tooth set design that allows increased debris relief, channeling bone fragments away from the cutting action, helping surgeons cut through bone faster and with more stability.
Zimmer Global Businesses Group president Jeff Paulsen said this comprehensive surgical power equipment line effectively meets surgeon and institution requirements.
As announced on 12 January 2012, Zimmer has acquired STABLECUT portfolio of surgical blades from Synvasive Technology.
Zimmer said it has launched its Power System and surgical saw blades at the 2012 American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons annual meeting in San Francisco, California , US.
