Hooks, Surgical, Middle Ear, Incus

Definition : Middle-ear surgical hooks designed to temporarily secure the incus by catching and/or pulling it during dissection, excision, and/or to perform other otological surgical procedures with minimal trauma. These middle-ear surgical hooks typically consist of handheld manual sterilizable stainless steel or plastic instruments with a shank bent near the distal end (usually at angles from 135 to 180 degrees) and finished in a blunt or sharp tip that fits into the convenient cavity; the hooks typically include a handle at the proximal end. Incus hooks are available in different sizes (small, medium, large) according to the type of surgery. They are used during otological surgical procedures (e.g., to steady and minutely lift the incus while placing a prosthesis).
