Brushes, Surgical, Bone

Definition : Surgical brushes designed for use during procedures performed on bone. These brushes typically consist of a flexible, twisted, metallic (e.g., stainless steel) wire with bristles (e.g., nylon) radiating from the shaft; the wire is attached to a handle or conformed for direct manual manipulation or use with a manual or powered handpiece at the proximal end. Dedicated bone brushes are used mainly in orthopedic surgery to prepare (i.e., clean and debride) a bone canal or cavities before cement application during prosthetic procedures.
