The Differences Between Traditional Scalpels and Ultrasonic Scalpels for Pet Surgery | Surgsci

May 04, 2023

Traditional scalpels and ultrasonic scalpels are both used in veterinary surgery. However, there are differences between the two. 

Traditional scalpels are sharp and can make precise incisions. They are also relatively inexpensive and easy to use. However, if not used properly, they can cause tissue damage and bleeding. 

On the other hand, ultrasonic scalpels use high-frequency sound waves to cut through tissue. They are more expensive than traditional surgery knives but offer several advantages. Ultrasonic scalpels can cut through tissue without causing damage or bleeding. They also produce less heat than traditional surgery knives, which can help reduce the risk of tissue damage. 

Additionally, ultrasonic scalpels can cut through bone tissue, which is not possible with traditional surgery knives. This makes them useful for orthognathic surgery. 

In conclusion, both traditional scalpels and ultrasonic scalpels have their advantages and disadvantages when it comes to veterinary surgery. The choice of instrument depends on the type of surgery being performed and the surgeon’s preference.
