Abstract

Previously, only the expensive oscillating saw and Schuknecht temporal trephine were available for removing human temporal bone plugs and no trephines were made for smaller research primates. An inexpensive hole saw has been modified for removing such plugs with an electric drill. This device is less expensive, easier to use, causes less potential impact damage to the plug and the size of the hole saw can be varied for the size of the skull.
