Clamps, Surgical, Intestinal, Colon
Definition : Intestinal surgical clamps designed for the atraumatic grasping or compression of a portion of the colon during open-surgery procedures. These clamps are typically handheld, manual instruments including two parts pivoted at the center with a size appropriate for the manipulation of the colon in the deep abdomen or pelvis; the instruments include smooth or serrated, straight, angled, or curved distal blades and appropriate handles. Dedicated intestinal clamps are available for resection and/or anastomosis (end-to-end and lateral) of the colon, frequently including a locking mechanism; other dedicated clamps are intended for colostomy.
