Hooks, Surgical, Middle Ear, Foot Plate

Definition : Middle-ear surgical hooks designed to temporarily secure the flat portion of the stapes (i.e. foot plate) 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 offering a non-corrosive and anti-bacterial feature which provides greater durability. Foot-plate hooks are usually supplied with a shank bent near the distal end (usually at angles from 135 to 180 degrees) and finished with a ball tip; the hooks typically include a flat working end and an angled shaft at the proximal end for better handling; they are available in different sizes. Foot plate hooks are commonly used during otological surgical procedures.
