Hooks, Biopsy

Definition : Hooks designed to temporarily secure tissues or organs by catching and/or pulling them during biopsy procedures causing minimal trauma. These hooks typically consist of handheld metallic (e.g., titanium) or other hard material 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; hooks typically include a handle at the proximal end. Biopsy hooks are designed to be easily visible under mammography, ultrasound, and MRI guidance; they also have dual anchoring technology to reduce the risk of migration. They are usually used during biopsy procedures (e.g., to help obtain multiple core samples from soft tissue such as liver, kidney and abdominal masses) in healthcare facilities.
