Abstract

Drilling of bone is a common surgical procedure in orthopedics to produce holes for screw insertion. The force and temperature rise in bone drilling are two important factors affecting the outcome of the process. The present work attempts to investigate the effect of drill point angle on the level of force and temperature in bone in the presence of ultrasonic vibrations imposed on the drill along the drilling direction. The effect of drill speed on the drilling force and bone temperature was studied using two types of drills with different point angles. The influence of a range of ultrasonic frequencies and amplitudes of vibrations on drilling force, torque and surface temperature of bone was also investigated. The drilling force and bone temperature were found to be strongly influenced by the drill point angle in the presence of ultrasonic vibrations. The drill with larger point angle caused more force and temperature compared to the drill with smaller point angle. Ultrasonic frequency above 15 kHz was observed to produce more temperature in bone for both types of drill geometries. This study found drill with smaller point angle favorable for safe and efficient drilling in bone.
