Clips, Surgical, Instrument
Definition : Surgical clips designed to hold small surgical instruments (e.g., needle holders, cannulae) during surgical procedures. These clips are typically small metal instruments with two blades crossed at the midportion, permitting manipulation in a cross-action, or joined at the midportion, resembling forceps or scissors. Instrument clips have blunt ends that do not perforate, tear, or damage instruments. Surgical instrument clips are designed for temporarily holding or attaching instruments during surgery; they may also be used in other medical procedures.
