Ceramic based surgical saw ensures safe surgeries

Posted on

journal of ceramic science and technology impact factorYttria Tetragonal zirconia (YTZP) and Ce-ZrO2 powders are widely used to prepare the surgical saws and are pressed isostatic.  The saw teethes are machined by CNC machine, using diamond tool. Investigations revealed that rise in temperature as a result of raise in the speed and pressure while cutting the bone is resulting in thermal damage to the bone tissues. When the ceramic material is used replace the stainless steel, there was a significant reduction in temperature and the excellent corrosion resistance after sterilization, hardness, wear and abrasive resistance properties. These qualities show the advantages of 3Y-TZP ceramic saws in orthopaedic surgeries.
