Bryce M. Fincham, Todd Jaeblon J Am Acad Orthop Surg September 2011 ; 19: Abstract Successful penetration of bone is dependent on several factors, including bone quality, drill bit and pin design, and drilling technique. Wires are also used in bone drilling, and the tip configuration can affect the efficiency of bone penetration. Incorrect use of drill bits, pins, and wires may result in complications such as thermal necrosis and hardware breakage.
