Clamps, Surgical, Intestinal, Small Intestine
Definition : Intestinal surgical clamps designed for the atraumatic grasping or compression of a portion of the small intestine during open-surgery procedures. These clamps are typically handheld, manual instruments including two parts pivoted at the center with a size appropriate for the manipulation of the small intestine in the deep abdomen; the instruments typically include smooth or serrated, straight, angled, or curved distal blades and appropriate handles. Dedicated small intestine clamps are available for resection and/or anastomosis (end-to-end and lateral) of specific segments of the small intestine (i.e., duodenum, jejunum, ileum), frequently including a locking mechanism; other dedicated devices are intended for ostomy procedures.
