Home > Specialties > Sizers


Definition : Instruments designed to measure and calibrate the dimensions (e.g., length, diameter) of anatomic parts to facilitate the selection of the size of their replacements (i.e., grafts, implants, and/or prostheses) and/or the instruments needed to perform a procedure. These devices are typically manual, handheld instruments, including dedicated calipers, rulers, tapered rods, or other instruments, that permit fast and simple measuring intended for classification of sizes. Sizers are not intended for a very accurate measurement of anatomic parts but to facilitate the selection of the surgical instrument and/or prostheses (e.g., heart valves), implants (e.g., breast, penile), and/or grafts (e.g., vascular) that best fit for a given procedure from a series of preestablished sizes.
