Nippers, Malleus

Definition : Surgical instruments designed to snip/cut small pieces of hard bony tissue from a tiny bone shaped like a mallet located in the middle ear (i.e., malleus). These devices typically consist of a forceps-like instrument with small but strong working ends and appropriate handles. The stationary blade on the working end typically ends in a sharpened anvil or a hook-like design, with various angled blades. In the anvil design, the sliding blade opens and closes a second sharpened blade against the anvil. In the hook design, the sliding blade closes against the hook.
