Chisels, Surgical, Bone, Outgrowth
Definition : Bone surgical chisels designed to excise bone outgrowths (i.e., osteophytes). These chisels typically consist of a handheld, manual instrument including a straight or slightly curved flat blade with a very sharp cutting edge that is beveled on one side. Dedicated bone-outgrowth surgical chisels are used mainly in delicate neurosurgical procedures, including cranial opening and spinal discectomy; other dedicated chisels are available for use in microsurgical procedures.
