Drill Bits, Surgical, Spine

Definition : Surgical drill bits designed to be held and revolved by a rotary device to excavate, perforate, or excise fragments of the spine including the vertebrae. These drill bits typically consist of a cylindrical shank of stainless steel or other hard metal alloy with a uniform cross-section. They include a working end with cutting edges (e.g., twisted, helicoidally), and a notched or elongated proximal end to fit into the rotary device (e.g., a drill, handpiece); they usually include stoppers to avoid perforation beyond a pre-established depth. Some spine drill bits are cannulated to allow their use over a guide wire. Dedicated spine surgical drills are available for a variety of procedures and/or for different segments of the spine (e.g., cervical, lumbar, thoracic), including reshaping the spine and implantation of prostheses during orthopedic surgery. They are usually intended for reuse after sterilization, but can be disposable (single-use).
