ultrasonic aspirator

Tumors have different textures and consistencies.  Sometimes tumors are firm and hard.  At the time of surgery, if this is felt to be the case, an ultrasonic aspirator helps to remove the tumor.  Seen here is an ultrasonic aspirator tip, gently sucking up a firm meningioma.  It works by gently vibrating tissue and sucking it away.
