Hooks, Surgical, Spinal Cord, Cordotomy

Definition : Surgical hooks designed to temporarily secure or isolate the spinal cord by catching and/or pulling it during dissection, excision, and/or to perform other procedures with minimal trauma during cordotomy surgery. These surgical hooks typically consist of handheld manual stainless steel instruments with a shank bent near the distal end (usually at angles from 135 to 180 degrees) and finished in a blunt tip; the hooks typically include a handle at the proximal end. Cordotomy hooks are usually supplied as fine half-round hooks, fixed at right angles on the end of a delicate handle. They are commonly used during cordotomy procedures for the relief of severe and persistent pain.
