Punches, Surgical, Sella Turcica
Definition : Surgical punches designed to open the sellar (i.e., sella turcica) floor to access the pituitary gland. These punches are typically handheld, manual instruments with a cutting mechanism (e.g., movable, two-part) at the distal end, operated by grasping an articulated handle configured at an angle (e.g., 60 degrees) to the mechanism. Sella turcica punches are used mainly in surgical procedures intended to excise pituitary tumors.
