Integra LifeSciences Launches Bone-Cutting Selector SaberTip

Integra LifeSciences Holdings Corp. announced the launch of the Selector SaberTip for the CUSA Selector ultrasonic surgical aspirator system.

The new Selector SaberTip is designed for surgical applications requiring precise and controlled removal of bone and calcified tissues. The Selector SaberTip attaches to the CUSA Selector’s 24 kHz neurosurgical short handpiece, reportedly offering surgeons premier bone-removal power and fine control.

Features include titanium nitride hardening, helical cutting action and a central aspiration path, which assists in clearing debris from the operative field. The abrasive bone-cutting portion of the Selector SaberTip covers half the outer circumference of the probe tip, allowing the surgeon to precisely remove bone without damaging adjacent critical structures.
