Hollow Mill for Extraction of Stripped Titanium Screws: An Easy, Quick, and Safe Technique
Removal of jammed titanium screws can be difficult due to the problem of stripping of the hexagonal heads of the screws. We present a technique of extraction of stripped screws with the use of a standard 4.5 mm stainless steel hollow mill in a patient of peri‑implant fracture of the radius fixed with a titanium locking plate 2 years back. The technique is quick, safe, and cost effective.
