Brushes, Surgical, Bone, Intramedullary, Narrow Canal

Definition : Bone surgery brushes designed to prepare (i.e., clean and debride) a narrow (usually 0.5 inch [1.27 cm or less]) bone canal for application of cement. These brushes typically consist of a disposable (single use) flexible, twisted, metallic (e.g., stainless steel) wire with bristles (e.g., nylon) radiating from the shaft at the distal end; the wire is conformed as a loop appropriate for handling at the proximal end. Narrow-canal bone brushes are typically used after broaching or reaming of the canal; they are used in total arthroplastic hip replacement and other orthopedic procedures.
