Carriers, Surgical, Cotton/Sponge/Swab, Endoscopic
Definition : Sponge/swab carriers designed to carry a sponge or a small pad (e.g., a swab) of cotton or other absorbent material at the working tip to clean and/or absorb body fluids (e.g., blood, mucus) through the working channel of an endoscope during endoscopic surgical procedures. These carriers are typically long, slender, manual, flexible instruments that include grasping claws at the working end, a long shaft, and a handle at the proximal end to manipulate the grasping end. Dedicated sponge/swab endoscopic surgical carriers are available in sizes (i.e., length and diameter) appropriate for use with specific endoscopes.
