How do you use a surgical instrument – detachable rongeur?
Rongeurs have a hefty, pointed jaw, similar to pliers. Rongeurs are used to chew holes in bones during surgery because of their heavy construction. The rongeur’s scoop-shaped tip is used to gouge the bone. This could be neurosurgery, in which a portion of the skull is removed to expose the brain.
