Clamps, Surgical, Vascular, Artery, Aorta, Anastomosis
Definition : Aorta vascular surgical clamps designed for the atraumatic compression of the aorta during vascular anastomosis procedures. These clamps are typically handheld, manual instruments including two parts pivoted at the center with slender, long distal blades that are usually serrated and curved in a semicircular shape; other aorta anastomosis clamps include a mechanism that operates two semicylindrical distal ends that hold and compress the artery. Anastomosis aorta surgical clamps are used in procedures such as anastomosis of the aorta to the pulmonary artery.
