Hooks, Surgical, Spinal Cord

Definition : Surgical hooks designed to temporarily secure the spinal cord 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 with a shank bent near the distal end (usually at angles of 45 or 90 degrees) and finished in a blunt or sharp tip; the hooks typically include a handle at the proximal end. Spinal cord hooks can be supplied with a ball tip and are usually sized to isolate the spinal cord from the dura mater, so the cord can be cut with minimal damage to the dura mater. They are commonly used during surgical procedures involving spinal cord injuries.
