Bi-Color Ceramic Cut Micro Kerrison Detachable Rongeur
undefined Bi-Color Ceramic Cut Micro Kerrison Detachable Rongeurs feature a swing style shaft which opens up to allow easy cleaning of the shaft interior. Once the thumb release lever above the handle is depressed, the top portion of the cutting shaft unlocks and is able to be swung open, though it remains hinged. This prevents the risk of loss through separate parts. Bi-Color rongeurs feature a combination black and gold titanium nitride surface treatment, which hardens and protects the instrument body and cutting surface for a durable, smooth gliding action. These coated rongeurs do not need sharpening as often as traditional rongeurs, thus reducing operating costs and enhancing service life. The rongeur is a specialized instrument ideally suited for use in laminectomy procedures. It features small handles and thin footplate and is 40 degrees up which allows it to comfortably maneuver in the narrow spaces in and around the vertebral column. Laminectomies are performed for a number of reasons. Some include increased access to a particular region of the spinal cord by removing the vertebral arch of a series of vertebrae or to reduce pressure on a particular portion of the vertebral column. This instrument is available in 7″, 8″ or 9″ as well as in a variety of bite widths and with or without an ejector making it highly versatile and well suited for a number of surgical scenarios.
