Description: OTA Abstract 1998: The purpose of this study was to compare the new reamer system against the standard reaming system on the basis of IM pressures and temperatures generated.
Conclusion: The new low pressure IM reamer design appeared to significantly reduce pressures and reduce temperatures in cadaveric bones when tested against the standard reaming system.
