Hooks, Surgical, Middle Ear, Oval Window

Definition : Middle-ear surgical hooks designed to temporarily secure the oval window 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 malleable instruments with a shank bent near the distal end (usually at angles of 90 degrees) and finished in a blunt or sharp tip; the hooks typically include a handle at the proximal end. Oval window hooks with different shafts (e.g., fine, medium) are available. They are used during otological surgical procedures (e.g., to elevate the oval window during revision stapes surgery and tympanoplasty surgery).
