Punches, Surgical, Tonsil
Definition : Surgical punches designed to excise a segment (frequently in the form of a disc) of one of the two almond-shaped lymphoid tissue masses located on each side of the oropharynx (i.e., palatine tonsils). These punches are typically handheld, manual instruments with two blades ending in sharp concentric rings that work together as a jaw at the distal end, operated by manipulating scissors-like ring handles configured at an angle (e.g., 60, 90 degrees) to the blades.
