Clamps, Surgical, Ureter
Definition : Surgical clamps designed for the atraumatic grasping, compression, and/or manipulation of the ureter during open-surgery procedures. These clamps are typically handheld, manual instruments including two parts pivoted at the center with two working ends having opposite rows of noncrushing teeth to facilitate the lateral strip of the ureter and to correct the size of the lower ureter in congenital dilatation ureters (megaloureter). Several clamps are usually needed in open-surgery procedures intended to repair and/or modify the ureter.
