Abstract : The report contains a description of the skeletal anatomy and the structure and properties of bones, and bone is shown to be a unique living component of the body. Also dealt with are the general considerations that should be given to designing new surgical appliances. One section is devoted solely to describing the purpose, design, performance, and problems associated with specific surgical devices. In another section, an attempt has been made to answer pertinent questions about the manufacture of surgical devices, and some indications are given as to the production volumes of surgical devices. A glossary and a combined reference/bibliography listing are included to assist the reader in developing his knowledge concerning surgical devices. (Modified author abstract)
