Hooks, Surgical, Middle Ear, Stapes

Definition : Middle-ear surgical hooks designed to temporarily secure the stapes by catching and/or pulling it during dissection, excision, and/or to perform other otological surgical procedures with minimal trauma. These middle-ear surgical hooks typically consist of handheld manual stainless steel instruments with a shank bent near the distal end (usually at angles from 135 to 180 degrees) and finished in a small blunt or sharp tip. Stapes hooks typically include an angled and malleable shaft at the proximal end. They are used during otological surgical procedures (e.g., stapedectomy surgery, removing tympanosclerosis by lifting plaque from stapes in anterior direction).
