Punches, Surgical, Bone, Graft/Prosthesis Insertion
Definition : Bone surgical punches designed to excise a segment of bone tissue (frequently in the form of a disc), facilitating the insertion of bone prostheses (e.g., nails, pins) and/or bone grafts previously taken from a donor during surgical procedures. These devices are typically handheld, manual instruments with a movable, sharp, hollow tube at the distal end and a handle (sometimes configured for mallet striking). Dedicated surgical bone grafting punches are available in several sizes and with a variety of working end shapes (e.g., round, half round, oval) for the insertion of bone grafts and/or prostheses in specific bones (e.g., femur) during orthopedic procedures.
