These occluders typically consist of small (e.g., 7, 10, 12 mm) metallic pins that may include either smooth or beveled groove shafts; special applicators may be used to hold the pin during insertion. Presacral bleeding occluders are mostly used during emergency surgery involving surgical mobilization of the rectum.
