AN IMPROVED CURET FOR OPERATION ON THE MASTOID

AN IMPROVED CURET FOR OPERATION ON THE MASTOID Abstract Among the instruments employed for operation on the mastoid by my father, the late Dr. C. J. Spratt, was one that he purchased in Berlin in 1884. The instrument has a pear-shaped bowl and thin edges. It was made by Detert and is listed in his catalogue for 1888 as a Kuster model. As the handle is somewhat small, it does not afford a firm grasp when the curet is used as a rotary cutting instrument. At my suggestion, V. Mueller & Company combined this bowl with the handle used on my curet. This new instrument is suggested in three sizes, 2 by 5, 4 by 12 and 6 by 20 mm., as being sufficient for practically all work on the mastoid. The curet may be used as a rotary cutter or as a scraping instrument. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Otolaryngology American Medical Association
