Suction/Irrigation Tips, Illuminated
Definition : Suction/irrigation tips that include a fiberoptic bunch to provide illumination at the distal end. These tips are usually short, wide, rigid tubes (either straight or bent) with one or two lumens that are attached to the distal end of suction hoses or tubes or directly to a handpiece that is in turn connected to a high-level suction aspirator, an irrigator, and a fiberoptic light source. Suction/irrigation tips are used mainly to clean and improve visualization of clinical or surgical procedure sites (e.g., body cavities) when excellent illumination is needed; these tips are usually reusable devices. Dedicated fiberoptic suction/irrigation tips are available for particular clinical and/or surgical procedures.
