    Abstract

    This specification provides requirements for material, dimensions and tolerances, finish and marking, and care and handling for reamers intended to cut a cylindrical path along the medullary canal of diaphyseal bone. Intramedullary reamers are commonly used to prepare the medullary canal for the insertion of intramedullary fixation devices (IMFD). As such, the relationship between the intramedullary reamer diameter and the IMFD's diameter are considered. In general, intramedullary reamers consist of two types: one-piece reamera design where the reamer shaft and cutting head are permanently attached to each other; and Modular Reamera design where the reamer shaft and cutting head are two separate components, fixed to each other temporarily at the time of use via a geometric connection, for example, dovetail joint.
