- •Increasing tool speeds while drilling into the osteochondral area of bone leads to an increase in temperature.
- •Increasing drill bit sizes while drilling into the osteochondral area of bone leads to an increase in temperature.
- •Drilling in bone can lead to an increase in temperature that can cause osteonecrosis and cell damage.
