Bone Curette Handle for Improved Bone Removal in Endoscopic Ear Surgery
Development of surgical tools specialized for endoscopic ear surgery has enabled otological surgery to be accomplished with less bone removal. The combination of a chisel, hammer, and curette helps to keep bone removal to a minimum. The curette, however, can present a problem in that its utility depends on the finger strength of the surgeon, and in some cases, the bone is too hard to cut. This problem has been resolved by the development of a handle attachment for bone curettes which facilities better bone cutting and removal.
