Chisels, Surgical, Middle Ear
Definition : Surgical chisels designed to cut and shape bone, cartilage, and associated tissue of the middle ear. These chisels typically consist of a handheld, manual flat-blade instrument with a cutting edge that is beveled on one side at the distal end and an integral handle. A great variety of middle-ear chisels of different sizes and shapes are available, including sturdy chisels with a proximal end appropriate to withstand mallet impacts intended for mastoid process fenestration, chisels intended for stapes surgery, and very small chisels, usually with a knurled handle, intended for otologic microsurgery.
