Definition : Wires designed to be conformed as loops used in surgical snares. These wires may consist of a single filament (i.e., monofilament), metal (usually stainless steel) wire or a combination of several wire filaments that are typically braided or twisted; the wires may be soft or stiff according to the intended use of the snare. Snare wires are usually supplied as spare components of surgical snares, dedicated wires intended for a particular type of snare (e.g., eye enucleation, tonsil resection) and model and/or manufacturer are also available.
