Post Mortem Chisel

The Xelpov’s Post Mortem Chisels are used by forensic doctors to divide and transect bones during autopsy procedures.

  • Solid & Flat Handle For Controlled Movements.
  • Long Shaft For Deep Surgical Access.
  • Sharp Edge For Clean Bone Cuts.

Xelpov’s Post Mortem Chisels assist doctors to cut and divide bones. Orthopedic surgeons can separate pieces of bones after cutting them with bone saws. This can help obtain biopsies to diagnose tumors and infections. In addition, chisels can expose the underlying tissues during autopsy procedures.

The doctor grasps the handle and places the blade under the bony segment. Then, using the handle as a lever, they lift the blade to separate the bones above it.

Therefore, we designed the Xelpov’s Post Mortem Chisel with a solid handle to enhance your grip and dexterity. Moreover, it has a flat design to increase your comfort and prevent hand slips.

We made the thin blade to focus the pressure on a small area of the bone. This ensures an easier bone separation. Furthermore, the wide neck allows you to see the working tip easily to prevent accidental slips and slides. Blades are available with widths of 20 and 23 mm to produce clean bone cuts.

The Xelpov’s Post Mortem Chisel is 13 cm long. In addition, we make other chisels for your convenience, like the Xelpov’s Councilman’s Chisels. Hence, you can choose from these tools to customize your approach in every procedure.

SURTEX® Instruments manufacture these devices from premium grade stainless steel that you can depend on for years of efficient service.
