Definition : Devices designed for attachment or occlusion of anatomic structures (e.g., blood vessels, fallopian tubes) and small objects and accessories (e.g., towels, drapes, bandages) used in surgical procedures without intentionally piercing them (i.e., atraumatic); some clips are intended for use as permanent implants or for temporary occlusion of external (e.g., nose, umbilical cord) anatomic structures. Surgical temporary clips usually permit only a small jaw opening, have a normally closed resting state, and are frequently applied manually; dedicated implantable clips include a variety of atraumatic small metallic or plastic devices in different shapes and sizes that are typically delivered using clip appliers.
