Bone drilling: a thermal model for bone temperature prediction

Abstract : Bone drilling is a common operation in orthopaedic and dental practices. This operation generates heat resulting mainly from friction between bone hole wall, chips and drill bit body. Heat generation during bone drilling exposes bone cells to elevated temperature and may result in thermonecrosis. Although many experimental investigations have been conducted to characterize the optimal drilling conditions, conclusions are still uncertain and diverging (Pandey and Panda 2013). In the present study, a semi- analytical model, based on the moving heat source approach combined with the method of image sources, is developed for predicting the temperature during bone drilling. An experimental drilling campaign on porcine bone samples is conducted in parallel, to validate the model.
