Clamps, Surgical, Uterus, Myomectomy
Definition : Uterine surgical clamps designed to atraumatically cut off the uterine blood supply while excising fibroids in the uterus (i.e., myomectomy). These clamps are typically handheld, manual instruments including two parts pivoted at the center each with a specially shaped, wide, blunt distal blade; they may include a four-hole handle for easy manipulation. Myomectomy clamps are used to control blood flow to and from the uterus, providing a bloodless operative field.
