Clamps, Surgical, Kidney
Definition : Surgical clamps designed for the atraumatic grasping and manipulation of the kidney during open-surgery procedures. These clamps are typically handheld, manual instruments including two parts pivoted at the center with curved articulated spring blades at the working end and appropriate ratchet handles. Kidney clamps can be used in the transverse, longitudinal, and oblique axis of the kidney, permitting a dry field during resection while preserving perfusion of the remaining parts of the organ.
