Clamps, Surgical, Bone, Plate Holding
Definition : Bone surgical clamps designed to grasp, stabilize, and center bone plates firmly in position. These clamps are handheld, manual instruments typically with two straight or angled blunt curved distal jaws; one jaw end is curved to grasp the bone and the other is especially conformed to hold the plate. Some clamps include a drill guide to maintain the plate over the fracture site and drill a screw hole simultaneously. Bone plate holding clamps are used to apply bone plates to long bone fracture fragments.
