Question Answer
Used for holding and manipulating delicate tissues. They have a wide, flat thumb grasp area that is commonly striated in one direction. The jaws are short and the tips are narrow. This product is straight with smooth edges, and a length usually of 4-3/4 inches. b1befea0-da99-4a3a-9e7b-9e4e9aa1a7a3.png (image/png) Adson Thumb Forceps (Mirella Ceja)
Primarily used for suture removal. These scissors have a small hook shaped tip on one blade that slides under sutures to slightly lift them before cutting the sutures. This hook also holds the suture so it does not slip off the blade of the scissors prior to cutting. Most commonly available in the length of 5-1/2 inches. This product is straight with smooth, both blunt tips. fc402ba7-1039-4462-9e30-6cd1a52f61f9.png (image/png) Littauer Suture Removal scissors (Mirella Ceja)
Ringed locking instrument for clamping tissue. Small curved jaws have zig-zag teeth at the tip. Forceps securely grasp tissue but cause significant tissue crushing and are therefore considered to be “traumatic forceps” and should be used only on tissues that are being removed from the patient (tumors, damaged bowel, etc.) May also be used to secure patient drapes and instrument cords. d16541e2-caf3-47af-be2e-25f888357215.jpg (image/jpg) Allis Tissue Forceps Mimi DiMatteo
Scissors for cutting bandage material. Blades bent for cutting at an angle. Top blade is a regular blunt. Bottom blade has a fat triangular blunt end to facilitate sliding under a bandage without catching the skin. 66963c82-0463-4911-a0f3-b7995924f058.jpg (image/jpg) Lister bandage scissors Mimi DiMatteo
AKA needle drivers. Ringed locking needle holder with no-slip surface at the active end and built-in scissors on half of working end nearest to the pivot. Designed to hold suture needles and pass them through tissue in order to perform suture ties. Because of ratcheted locking device, needle can be held without falling out or twisting. Increases surgical speed as the surgeon can work without assistance by cutting her own suture material. Be careful as sutures can be inadvertently cut. 2ebbdf24-943e-451d-977b-12f52c749ee9.jpg (image/jpg) Olsen-Hegar needle holders Mimi DiMatteo
A thin metal bar with perforations for the insertion of screws that is used to immobilize fractured bone segments. The plate is affixed with screws to properly align the bone and aid in the healing process. Plates are like internal splints that hold the broken pieces of bone together. They vary in length and may be curved or straight. Plates may be left in place after healing is complete, or they may be removed. Bone plates are named by the number of screw holes and by screw diameter size that fits the plate. 82cbf516-fc3b-4243-bba1-c60364c04b2b.png (image/png) Bone Plates Laura Kaufman
A type of bone marrow needle, often single use and disposable. A long, hollow needle with a tapered cutting edge on one end and a handle with a place to attach a syringe on the other end. It looks like an uppercase letter T. It is used to remove a sample of tissue from the bone marrow. The needle is inserted through the bone into the bone marrow and the syringe is attached to the top to remove the sample or to deliver drugs or fluid into the bone. 67fa6d13-33fe-4815-916a-2a32270ba66d.jpg (image/jpg) Jamshidi Needle Laura Kaufman

This instrument is used to retrieve the uterine horn from within a small animal. This instrument allows the surgeon to make a small incision, the length needed for a finger to fit into. A smaller incision makes it possible for a minimal tissue exposure to contaminates that are circulating around the surgical suite and a decreased possibility for tissue infection. This instrument is 8 inches long and has a flat, rounded hook at the end. This instrument has a common name of “Snook Hook” and “Spay Hook”. 79e0520e-e85d-4fce-b91d-8e350138a4f0.jpg (image/jpg) Snook ovariohysterectomy hook Bianca Flores
This instrument is used to cut thicker stainless steel wire, which is commonly used in orthopedic surgical procedures. These wire cutter scissors have short, compact, plain straight-edge blades. These blades hold the wire in place, giving the instrument the ability to increase additional pressure to cut heavier gauge wire without slipping or crimping the wire. The blades may be angled or straight. The length of the instrument itself is usually 4 ¾ inches. d021959a-61ea-4b0a-bb26-da6717bbe05d.png (image/png) Wire Cutters (Orthopedic) Bianca Flores

Interlocking nails are used to reduce fractures; they are placed into the medullary cavity of long bones and secured with screws at the proximal and distal ends. These nails vary in thickness, length, and number of preplaced screw holes. The shape of the nail depends on the bone it is intended for. Each nail has a numerical code (shown in bottom right photo) which describes their size and and the size of screw required. From left to right the numbers specify distance between screw holes(mm), diameter of nail(mm), length of nail(mm), number of proximal screw holes, number of distal screw holes, and the size of screw needed. 1062bb6b-9cad-464f-88e9-6cd46ed935cc.JPG (image/JPG) Interlocking Nails(orthopedic) Chris Schultz
The Balfour retractor provides increased exposure of the abdominal cavity. Two wire-like blades are used to distract the abdominal incision and the solid spoon-like blade is hooked onto the sternum to distract it cranially. This retractor holds itself in place, leaving the surgeon and assistant’s hands to focus on the surgical tasks. They come in different sizes, and are made of surgical steel that can withstand autoclaving and can be reused. It is important to ensure that no abdominal contents (ex. Bowel, spleen) are entrapped between the body wall and the retractor during placement. a85af269-01fb-40fe-ba55-4b89f2c60649.png (image/png) Balfour retractor Breanna Ries

The tip has an upward square curve, like a square “C.” 974ea1c1-bd9e-46e6-8f42-119574a6e86e.jpg (image/jpg) Kerrison Rongeurs (Orthopedic) Aleiah Lasala
Kirschner wires (aka”K- Wires”) are used to pin smaller bone fragments. They range from 0.035in, 0.045in, 0.062in in diameter and are similar to Steinmann’s Pins, but smaller. They are smooth and stainless steel. There are different types of tips: chiseled, trocar, or threaded trocar tip. Threads can be located in the middle as well; threads can have a positive or negative profile. K-wires are often inserted into the bone using a power drill or Jacobs hand chuck. 69be27d5-d47b-4980-ac6d-b7a348b09150.jpg (image/jpg) Kirschner wires (Orthopedic) Aleiah Lasala

A hand-held retractor that requires the aid of a surgical assistant to maintain position and tissue tension. It is double-ended with a smooth blade to retract skin, fat & muscle. Military medics will tell you a different story about the retractors’ different sides, depending on in which branch of the military they served. Navy medics may tell you that the Navy is the long side of the retractor because they go deeper, whereas Army medics may say that the Army side is the short one because the Army always gets the short end of the stick. fa4e1bb3-95e7-48a1-aacd-57e7dd3dcfb4.jpg (image/jpg) Army-Navy Retractor Stacey Perlman
A self-retaining retractor that maintains a desired position with a locking mechanism which allows the surgeon and the assistant to free up their hands for other tasks. It increases exposure of the abdominal cavity. Blunt prongs face outward to hold tissue edges open. Used in medium to large-sized sites & primarily spinal muscle retraction. The instrument is shaped like scissors with downward pointing prongs at the tip, with either sharp or blunt blades. This retractor has ratchet (unidirectional) mechanism through which it is locked in position. This instrument should be handled with care because the sharp tips can damage underlying tissue. eea2b224-70c4-4c53-8b11-b54749fc5e80.jpg (image/jpg) Weitlaner Retractor Stacey Perlman
