Passers, Wire

Definition : Passers designed to manipulate wires through or around hard tissue (bone and/or cartilage). These passers are typically manual, handheld flexible or rigid, slender instruments with an operating end to hold the wire and a proximal end with a handle appropriate to manipulate the wire. Dedicated wire passers are available in a variety of shapes (e.g., rods with hooks at the tip) and sizes to pass wires around particular anatomic structures (e.g., bone cerclage); they are used mainly in orthopedic procedures.
