Where used mostly:ﾠOrthopedic surgery, especially bone grafting (harvesting).ﾠ
Important product features:ﾠ Osteotomes have a working end without a bevel; the smaller versions are suitable for hand surgery. They are frequently used for cancellous bone. Chisels have a working end with a bevel. Osteotomes, chisels and gouges are designed for use with a mallet. They are available in straight and curved models.ﾠ
Useful hints in usage:ﾠBending forces should not be applied to chisel blades. Removable blades should be discarded after use. Great care must be taken to select the proper size, bevel type and force to avoid splitting bone.ﾠ
