Sometimes a simple cast is not enough to fix a broken bone. Surgery may instead be necessary to insert a nail into the bone and stabilise it. An EU-funded project has developed a prototype of a surgical tool for such operations that will help prevent potential cross-contamination. Thanks to a novel welding method, the new tool does not have any crevices where bacteria can hide and is also easier to clean than traditional tools. [read more]
