Hooks, Surgical, Middle Ear

These surgical hooks typically consist of handheld manual stainless steel or plastic instruments either curved or sharply bent at the working end (usually at angles of 45 or 90 degrees). Middle-ear surgical hooks are usually finished with a ball tip. Foot plate, incus, and oval window hooks are available. Middle-ear hooks are commonly used during otological surgical procedures and they can also be used for dislodging difficult to remove cerumen.
