Awls, Cartilage, Nasal
Definition : Cartilage awls designed for piercing the nasal cartilage and surrounding tissue. They are typically handheld, manual instruments with a slender, very delicate, slightly curved grooved blade with a very sharp point and a handle that is an integral part or attached to the working blade. Nasal cartilage awls are available in shapes and sizes appropriate to pierce the nasal cartilage so that damage to the cartilage and surrounding tissue is minimized; they are used in plastic and oral surgery procedures.
