Perforators, Earlobe

Definition : Surgical perforators designed to pierce the lobe of the ear auricle (i.e., the earlobe). These instruments are typically a mechanism that forces a sharpened point (usually a starter earring) through the earlobe. Earlobe perforators come in both disposable and reusable models that are primarily of two different designs. Disposable devices typically include a spring that stores potential energy; a starter earring and its matching friction back are placed in opposite parts of the instrument. When the earlobe is placed between the two parts and the spring is released, the instrument closes with enough pressure to force the sharpened stud of the earring through the earlobe, engaging it to a friction back. Reusable devices are very similar in design, but the detachable stud and clasp holders are entirely disposable. Devices that use the energy of the handgrip of the operator instead of spring energy in order to provide better control are also available. Earlobe perforators are intended only to pierce earlobes, but they are frequently used to pierce ear cartilage and other body parts.
