Hooks, Surgical, Uterine Fibroid

Definition : Surgical hooks designed to temporarily secure fibroids in the uterus by catching and/or pulling them during dissection, excision, and/or to perform other surgical procedures with minimal trauma. Surgical hooks typically consist of handheld manual 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; the hooks typically include a handle at the proximal end. Stainless steel or plastic fibroid uterine hooks are available. Fibroid uterine hooks are used during medical procedures (e.g., to perform simple obstetric and gynecologic manipulative functions such as incising the muscular wall of the uterus).
