Punches, Surgical, Bone, Sternum
Definition : Bone surgical punches designed to excise a segment of the sternal tissue (frequently in the form of a rectangular sheet), during thoracic (e.g., cardiovascular) procedures. These devices are typically handheld, manual, forceps-like instruments with a strong, sharp distal blade and a matching cavity facing the sharp end on the other distal blade, that are operated by squeezing the handles.
