Rotatable surgical snare Patent #: 3955578
AbstractA surgical instrument for removing cellular tissue from the body cavities arranged to shape a loop easily by using an elongated cable. The cable is folded essentially in the middle intermediate the ends thereof. The thusly folded cable is positioned internally of an elongated open ended sheath. Manipulative structure is provided at the proximal end for selectively reciprocatively sliding one or both of end portions of the cable whereby a loop may be formed externally of the other end of the sheath. The structure when manipulated provides a controlled configuration of the loop.
