English term or phrase: bone tamp
Chirurgische Technik beim Entfernen von Prothesenkomponenten am Knie (Revisionschirurgie, Knie-Totalendoprothesen):

If required, the gigli saw can also be inserted behind the posterior flanges of the femoral component and pulled distally and then anteriorly.

Finally, a **bone tamp** (or extraction tool, if available) is placed against the edge of the prosthetic component and tapped with a mallet to complete the removal of the component from the distal femur.

Ein "inflatable bone tamp" ist wohl ein "Ballon-Katheder" (http://www.kyphon.com/de/PopUp.aspx?contentid=104&siteid=5), aber ich glaube nicht, dass das in diesem Kontext passt.

Any ideas?

Es wird hier von der Gigli Säge gesprochen und dann ein Meissel erwähnt. könnte das passen? Vielleicht hilft der ganze Artikel, um sich den Vorgang zu vergegenwärtigen?

Reference: V-Tamp

Reference information:
Ich glaube, dass es sich um so ein Instrument handelt, kenne aber den deutschen Ausdruck nicht

The shaped end of the V TAMP fits the edge of a femoral prosthesis to facilitate removal. A curved radius behind the ' v ' prevents the tamp from digging into bone.
