Product Description and Intended Use
The Arthrex AR-8305 Synergy Resection Shaver System is a motorized,
suction/cutting device used for the resection and aspiration of soft tissue,
cartilage and bone during arthroscopic surgical procedures.
The console is microprocessor controlled and features two fully functional
channels that allow optional simultaneous handpiece operation. Both channels
can be operated with a single foot switch or individually when a second foot
switch is attached to the console. The Synergy Resection has a maximum speed
of 8,000 revolutions per minute providing precise burr control during surgical
The Synergy Resection console is designed for continuous operation. The
handpieces are individually protected by a resetting thermal fuse. In the event of
a motor overload fault (e.g., excess current) the fuse heats up and the device is
deactivated. When the fault is removed and the fuse cools down (typically about
30 seconds) operation resumes at the pre-failure settings.
The cable and all handpieces can be sterilized, so handpieces can be changed
during the surgical procedure without endangering surgical sterility.
