Blades, Electric/Pneumatic Dermatome

Definition : Blades designed as the cutting component of powered (electric or pneumatic) surgical instruments intended for mechanical skin graft harvesting (i.e., dermatomes). These blades typically consist of a flat piece of metal (e.g., stainless steel) with one sharp edge that can cut large skin grafts with uniform-thickness by performing a rapidly oscillating side-to-side movement as the dermatome is manually advanced over the skin. Dedicated blades are available according to the particular characteristics of the dermatomes (e.g., Castroviejo, Brown). Dermatomes are mainly used to obtain skin grafts from donor sites, but they are sometimes used in other procedures (e.g., to remove tattoos).
