Several surgical tool failures were analyzed to understand why they occur and how to prevent them. The study included drills, catheters, and needles subjected to the rigors of biomedical applications such as corrosive environments, high stresses, sterilization, and improper cleaning procedures. Given the extreme conditions to which surgical tools can be exposed, and the potential for misuse, failures are inevitable and systematic methods for analyzing them are necessary to keep them in check.
