Colliding jets provide depth control for water jetting in bone tissue.

Abstract

In orthopaedic surgery, water jet drilling provides several advantages over classic drilling with rigid drilling bits, such as the always sharp cut, absence of thermal damage and increased manoeuvrability. Previous research showed that the heterogeneity of bone tissue can cause variation in drilling depth whilst water jet drilling. To improve control over… (More)
