V Theflpresent invention relatestosurgical instruments and more particularly to an arcuate drill for intranasal aspiration or puncture oftlie' facial sinus or ant-rum.

lhefacial sinus'or antrum of Highniore is a large, cavity of somewhat pyramidal.

form located within the superior maxillary ,l bone. It flS sub ect to numerous surgical diseases, the most common being infection followed. [by Suppuration," necessitating drai1'ia ge.= The ivalls of the antrumare c0mparatively thin, particularly thatportion of the internal Wall which separates: the antruin from thefinfer'ior. meatus of the nasal fos sae." The e itrem'e thinness otfthe internal all and its accessibility through lithe nares renders the intranasal route'desirable for surgical operatioin However,

'means of intran'asal operations'has' been by" I use of a troca'ror cannula, with 'Whichthef '30 a pressure. The tortuous p assagetlirough the;

' due to lack of facilities and suitable instruments for puncturing the internal antrum Wall, surgical preferencehas. been given to operations byvth'e dental'route; which necessitates the sacrificeandeXtrac-i tion of a molar tooth, and drilling through .the alveolar .process, ortoenter/the antrum through the lower exterior Wall, just above the apices ofitlie tooth rootsf The sole antrum Wallis punctured by application of nasal tossze does not readily accommodate a straighttrocai". A curved trocar or cannula is unsuitable since direct drivingpres-u sure is necessary and more or less-twisting or boring movement is required to penetrate the antiu n n all. In such method there isino Way jot controlling the extent of the-bone break j age, and the wall may be, fractured or splintered through a greater'areathan intended. In case the access opening thus t'orm ed 1s lowed by that of a rasp;

In the present invention meansis contemQ plated for enteringjthe antrum through the nasal route by drilling through the Wall be-l tween the aiitruin, and the interior meatus.

Since this point of operation cannot be ap-e preached directly, or v in a straight line throughthe hares, there IS employed an 1n operated by a flexible drive shaft extending tliionghthe hollow curvilinear stem. To

In Fig. '7 there is shown a burr or drillhead of somewhat different shape, particu la-rlya-pplicahle to the drilling ct-curved passages to facilitate the wiring or-interconnection of fractured bones.v Inasmuch-as such points of operation are more readily accessible, there is less dangerof losing the burr in the opening. It is also desirable thatthe a-rcuate stemfi be of smaller diameter than'the burr, in'order that the hurrinay'v clear itself of bone chips.
