Clips, Surgical, Vascular, Aneurysm
Definition : Vascular surgical clips designed for the temporary atraumatic occlusion of blood vessel aneurysms during surgical procedures. These clips are typically small, usually metal (e.g., cobalt, titanium alloy) instruments with two blades joined at the midportion or made from a single alpha-shaped part. Aneurysm surgical clips are usually applied manually; they do not include a handle or other proximal attachment for manipulation. Aneurysm clips are used mainly for hemostasis and/or to facilitate surgical procedures by temporarily interrupting of blood circulation into a vessel aneurysm.
