Clamps, Surgical, Vascular, Artery, Carotid

Definition : Vascular surgical clamps designed for the grdual atraumatic compression of the carotid artery during open-surgery procedures, usually to cause total or partial temporary occlusion (i.e., coarctation). These clamps are typically handheld, manual instruments with a clamping, usually threaded mechanism at the distal tip that is operated by rotation of the handle. Dedicated carotid artery clamps are available for controlled gradual occlusion and/or for hemostasis of the artery; they are mainly used during surgery of the intracranial vasculature.
