Electromechanical Surgical Units, Neurology

Definition : Electromechanical surgical units designed for electrically powered mechanical ablation (resection) of abnormal soft tissue (i.e., tumors) in the central nervous system. This equipment typically consist of (1) a central unit (a console) that provides power and may also provide suction to a cutting handpiece that includes controls (e.g., to choose from cutting and/or aspiration mode), (2) a detachable cutting handpiece, and (3) a switch, that may consist of a foot switch and control pedal. The central unit also provides appropriate connections to the electric power supply, handpiece, aspiration line, and disposable material canister. Neurologic electromechanical surgical units are mostly intended for cutting and disposing intracranial (i.e., brain) and/or spinal soft tissue tumors during minimally invasive surgical procedures (e.g., image guided stereotactic surgery) or open surgery procedures.
