Definition : Devices designed to position and facilitate the operation of moving (i.e., guide) components of equipment and as guides during the performance of manual or endoscopic procedures improving their accuracy. These guides typically consist of a mechanical device that may be attached to instruments (e.g., drills, saws, snares) to facilitate the use of detachable components (i.e., drill bits, saw blades, snare wires) or to function as independent guides intended to lead small devices (e.g., needles) during manual (e.g., suturing) and endoscopic procedures.
