This paper is a comprehensive survey of datasets for surgical tool detection and related surgical data science and machine learning techniques and algorithms. The survey offers a high level perspective of current research in this area, analyses the taxonomy of approaches adopted by researchers using surgical tool datasets, and addresses key areas of research, such as the datasets used, evaluation metrics applied and deep learning techniques utilised. Our presentation and taxonomy provides a framework that facilitates greater understanding of current work, and highlights the challenges and opportunities for further innovative and useful research.
