Punches, Surgical, Nasal
Definition : Surgical punches designed to excise a segment of tissue (frequently in the form of a disc), typically cartilage, from the nose and/or nearby anatomic structures through the nose. These punches are typically handheld, manual instruments with a movable, sharp mechanism (e.g., tube, jaw) at the distal end, operated by squeezing a handle (i.e., ring-like, two-part). Dedicated nasal surgical punches are available for specific anatomic structures and/or procedures, such as surgery of the adenoids and the paranasal sinuses.
