Clips, Implantable, Vascular
Definition : Implantable clips designed for extravascular occlusion of blood vessels (either veins or arteries) in open-surgery or laparoscopic procedures. These clips are typically small metal devices that are externally applied to the tubes using dedicated appliers. Implantable vascular clips are mainly used to prevent and/or control bleeding (i.e., hemostasis); dedicated clips are available to occlude aneurysms.
