Hand Drills, Biopsy
Definition : Hand drills designed to obtain specimens intended for biopsy procedures. These instruments consist of a manually propelled or powered (e.g., electric, pneumatic) instrument that typically includes a chuck and other detachable components such as drill bits, drill needles, and trephines; some biopsy drills are used with special guides. Biopsy hand drills may include an integral drill bit for a particular (e.g., spinal) use; battery operated electric drills provide autonomous operation without connection to external power sources. Biopsy hand drills are used for a variety of purposes, they may use dedicated drill bits for taking samples of bone, soft tissue (e.g., pulmonary, thyroid, and/or breast), and bone marrow; biopsy hand drills may be also used for harvesting bone and/or medullar tissue.
