Sachit MalhanBelieve me or no but local 100rs drills are far better than 2k drills. Never saw a single breakage for last 5 years and prev when we using imported ao drill 4 or 5 incidents were there. And another benefit you can change the drill bit after 2 or 3 surgeries and won’t affect pockets at all.
Bipin SolankiDrillbits breaks when there is track mismatch in guide wire and cannulated Drillbits, then actually Drillbit cuts the guide wire. This happens when we use low quality very flexible threaded guidewires which doesn’t go straight in bone but rigid Drillbit go straight so they cut it on there way.. Moreover threaded wires r very weak.. I use k wires in place..
Sachit MalhanI agree with Dr Bipin Solanki but not with the fact low quality guide wires. If you do drilling on mismatch tracks guide writes break. These wires have to be inserted by cannulated drill s ,if done by normal battery non cannulated drill track miss match will result. I have seen people doing that too.
Javed Shaikh1 option- i always drill without guide wire (so never encountered guide wire breakage !) 2nd (v helpful)- wen u get little resistance or getting stuck, do 4wd backward, dnt drill 4wd only. Belive me it works
Vijay TubakiHi,Sunil Gupta,,first I made sure that my entry point was perfect in both AP and lateral.I slightly bent my guide wire tip before I passed inside the medullary canal..So that each stage, I can rotate around to push into next medullary canal…then I passed guide wire reducing each fracture one by one..each stage I did not bother about distal fracture fragments..
