Brushes, Surgical, Bone, Intramedullary, Femoral Canal

Definition : Bone surgery brushes designed to prepare (i.e., clean and debride) the femoral canal for application of bone 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. Femoral canal brushes are typically used with simultaneous application of irrigation after broaching or reaming the canal; they are used in prosthetic orthopedic procedures (e.g., hip replacement).
