Hooks, Surgical, Spermatic Cord

Definition : Surgical hooks designed to temporarily secure tissues of the spermatic cord by catching and/or pulling them 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 slightly curved at the working end (usually at angles from 135 to 180 degrees); the hooks typically include a handle at the proximal end. Spermatic cord hooks are usually finished in a blunt tip. They are commonly used during surgical procedures by urologists (e.g., microsurgical varicocelectomy, inguinal hernia).
