Purpose: Piezoelectric bone surgery was already extensively used in a number of surgical procedures ranging from dental to maxillofacial surgery. The authors aimed to determine whether piezosurgery was suitable and advantageous for performing osteotomies in Hand and Plastic reconstructive surgery. Methods: The authors overviewed a variety of applications for Piezosurgery® Device, from Mectron, in bone reconstructive surgery with over the last 8 years. An overall number of 156 bone cutting procedures in adults and children was described at the phalanges, metacarpal bones and distal radius level, as well as in bone graft harvesting and bone remodeling following carpal scaphoid nonunion, scapho-lunate bone-ligament-bone reconstruction and fibula free flap in maxillofacial defects. Results: The consolidation rate was 87.5% in scaphoid nonunion grafting and fixation. Bone healing was achieved in all other cases. No intra-operative complications were recorded. Conclusion: Piezosurgery® allowed high precision in bone cutting as well as custom-made graft and surface roughness were obtained, while preserving nerves, vessels and tendons integrity. The instrument may be handling moved into the surgical space in absence of vibrations, with a clear view onto the bone. The mechanical and biological characteristics of the piezoelectrical effect perfected this technique as an effective and useful instrument in Hand and Plastic surgery. The selective bone cutting properties avoided injuries to the surrounding soft tissues and thermal damage of the bony cells. Best advantages were described in feasibility and flexibility for intra-articular osteotomies, custom-made grafts and reconstructive microsurgical techniques.
