Purpose  Piezoelectric and ultrasonic vibrations have been used to cut tissues for three decades, in particular, in periodontics. The increasing use of piezosurgery is based on its clinical advantages such as selective cutting, precision, and low-temperature work rates. The authors applied this concept to a new operative field, the foot and ankle pathology and surgery, such as hallux valgus corrective distal linear osteotomy. Methods  The osteotome equipped was the Surgysonic Moto-II model (Esacrom, Imola, Italy), a system recently developed for cutting bone withmicrovibrations. Tips used in author's case series were a high-efficiency five teeth piezoelectric saw and a high-efficiency flat scalpel shaped on three edges. Operative technique is described. Discussion and Conclusion  Piezoelectric techniques were developed in response to the need for great precision and safety in bone surgery that was availavle with other manual and rmotorised instruments. Piezo-technology allows minimally-invasive and percutaneous surgery, with reduced trauma on periostium, bone, and soft tissues, reduced healing time of the osteotomy due to the absence of bony necrosis and debris formation and major precision.

Abstract

Purpose  Piezoelectric and ultrasonic vibrations have been used to cut tissues for three decades, in particular, in periodontics. The increasing use of piezosurgery is based on its clinical advantages such as selective cutting, precision, and low-temperature work rates. The authors applied this concept to a new operative field, the foot and ankle pathology and surgery, such as hallux valgus corrective distal linear osteotomy. Methods  The osteotome equipped was the Surgysonic Moto-II model (Esacrom, Imola, Italy), a system recently developed for cutting bone withmicrovibrations. Tips used in author's case series were a high-efficiency five teeth piezoelectric saw and a high-efficiency flat scalpel shaped on three edges. Operative technique is described. Discussion and Conclusion  Piezoelectric techniques were developed in response to the need for great precision and safety in bone surgery that was availavle with other manual and rmotorised instruments. Piezo-technology allows minimally-invasive and percutaneous surgery, with reduced trauma on periostium, bone, and soft tissues, reduced healing time of the osteotomy due to the absence of bony necrosis and debris formation and major precision.
