The influence of irrigation on bone cutting was determined by measuring the biomechanical performance of a bone cutting saw during irrigation with various solutions. Solutions of 0.9% saline and 10, 20, and 30% poloxamer-188 were used as the irrigant. A 10% solution of poloxamer-188 was judged to be the superior irrigant because it successfully maintained bone temperature at a controlled level without interfering with the rate of bone removal.
