In theory we would discard any instrument that comes into contact with possibly infected (i.e. brain or spinal cord) tissue. Given that we don't do neuro we'd have bigger problems than what to do with instruments if we find ourselves poking around in brain. I'm not sure what the policy is at larger Army hospitals that do perform neurosurgery.
