Hooks, Surgical, Skin

Definition : Surgical hooks designed to temporarily secure the skin by catching and/or pulling it during dissection, excision, and/or to perform other surgical procedures with minimal trauma. These surgical hooks typically consist of handheld manual stainless steel instruments curved and with a fine sharp prong at the working end; the hooks typically include a handle at the proximal end. Skin surgical hooks can be supplied double pronged and with a thin and delicate shaft; large skin hooks on long shafts are also available to provide excellent retraction of dense tissue. Skin surgical hooks are used during surgical procedures (e.g., for handling soft tissues) in hospitals, surgery centers, and specialty clinics.
