Clips, Implantable, Cystic Duct
Definition : Implantable clips designed for occlusion of the cystic duct, either in open surgery or during laparoscopic procedures. These clips are typically small metal devices. One clip is applied to the cystic duct near its junction with the gallbladder, and two additional clips are placed near the point where the cystic duct joins the common bile duct. Implantable cystic duct clips are intended to close the duct in surgical procedures to excise the gall bladder.
