The Amputation Set is a group of instruments primarily used for a specific type of surgery – amputation. The process of amputation involves the removal of a body extremity by surgical means. It is done to control pain or a disease process in the affected limb, such as malignancy or gangrene. In some cases, it is carried out on individuals as a preventative surgery for such problems. The most common parts of the body subjected to amputation are the lower and upper limbs. The necessity of amputation arises from serious medical conditions like diabetes, sepsis with peripheral necrosis, cancerous bones or soft tissue tumours, severe limb injuries in which the limb cannot be spared or attempts to spare the limb have failed, deformities and infection.
Amputation outside the operating room is known to many as there were some people who had done it on their own. However, this poses a great health threat. It is still advisable that when amputation is warranted, amputation should be done in an operating room, and a complete and quality Amputation Set should be used. The reason is that the procedure is highly complicated, for a part of the bone must be cut. The first step is ligating the supplying artery and vein, to prevent bleeding. The muscles are transected, and finally the bone is sawed through with a special saw. Sharp and rough edges of the bones are filed down; skin and muscle flaps are then transposed over the stump, occasionally with the insertion of elements to attach prosthesis.
There are seventy-six (76) special instruments included in the Amputation Set. Some of which are the bone-holding forceps for holding, stabilizing, rotating, reducing or compressing the bone; the osteotomes for cutting or preparing bone; a mallet for assistive pressure deliverance; and of course, the Gigli saw set – includes guide and protector, handles, and saw thread – for bone-cutting where the bones have to be smoothly cut at the level of amputation.
This is, as related, a very sophisticated procedure; therefore, surgeons make sure that they use the reliable instruments when they perform the operation. Blacksmith Surgical’s Amputation Set offers the finest quality there is in the market. The instruments in the set, since made of high quality material, should provide optimal safety during amputation procedures. The set is enclosed in a packaging of excellent black leather material.
