Punches, Surgical, Bone
Definition : Surgical punches designed to excise a segment (frequently in the form of a disc) of hard tissue from a bone or a donor bone graft during surgical procedures. These punches 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 punches are available in several sizes and with a variety of distal end shapes (e.g., round, half round, oval) intended for specific bones and/or bone grafts; these punches are larger and sturdier than bone biopsy punches.
