This paper present contemporary information about the use in craniofacial surgery and the initial experience of the authors using this system. We conclude that the osteotomy with ultrasonic system can be optimized the surgery with slight increase of surgical time decreasing bleeding and risk to the injury to the soft tissie; is possible beleave that this kind of instrument can be used in any surgery with bone cut necessity.
