Carriers, Surgical, Cotton/Sponge/Swab, Microsurgery
Definition : Sponge/swab carriers designed to carry a very small sponge or pad (e.g., a swab) of cotton or other absorbent material at the working tip to clean and/or absorb body fluids (e.g., blood, mucus) during microsurgical procedures. These carriers are typically long, slender, manual, handheld instruments that include grasping claws or a small loop at the working end, a long shaft, and a handle at the proximal end to manipulate the sponge/swab. Microsurgery sponge/swab carriers are usually used in laryngeal procedures.
