Clamps, Surgical, Uterus
Definition : Surgical clamps designed for the atraumatic grasping, compression, and/or manipulation of the uterus and/or surrounding tissue during open-surgery procedures. These clamps are typically handheld, manual instruments including two parts pivoted at the center with straight or curved distal blades that may be smooth or serrated, and a handle with a ratchet mechanism with variable settings. Dedicated uterine clamps are available for use on the uterine cervix, uterine parametrium, and/or to perform specific procedures (e.g., myomectomy, repair of bleeding uterine wall).
