Curettes, Surgical, Bone, Spinal
Definition : Bone surgical curettes designed for scraping and/or excising bone tissue from the spine. These curettes are typically slender, metallic, handheld, manual instruments with a sharp, round cup-like working end and a long straight shaft that is attached to or finished in a sturdy handle as an integral part of the instrument. Spinal bone curettes are used in orthopedic surgical procedures performed in the spine, such as lumbosacral fusion; dedicated curettes are available for surgical procedures performed in the spinal discs (e.g., discectomy).
