Abstract

Ultrasonic aspirator power of < 20% created minimal acute morphologic damage to the cortex. Power settings between 20 and 30% may superficially damage the cerebral cortex in healthy dogs, whereas 40% power consistently damages the cerebral cortex. Knowledge of the degree of damage to cerebral cortex caused by various amounts of power for ultrasonic aspirators will allow surgeons to avoid damaging normal brain tissues during surgery.
