Curettes, Surgical, Bone
Definition : Surgical curettes designed for scraping and/or excising tissue from bones. These curettes are typically slender, metal, handheld, manual instruments with a sharp, oval or round cup at the distal end and a straight, curved, or angled shaft that is attached to or finished in a sturdy handle as an integral part of the instrument. Bone curettes are mainly used to prepare bones in orthopedic procedures (e.g., prostheses implantation); dedicated bone curettes are also available for other orthopedic surgical procedures including spinal surgery and/or microsurgery.
