Clip Removal Instructions for Use
- To remove a clip, grasp the applier and carefully place the jaws of the applier over the closed clip so the clip is fully positioned INSIDE the jaws (illustration)
- Once placed as shown, close the handles of the applier until there is an audible click, indicating the clip has unlocked (Illustration). Ensure the clip has opened sufficiently to allow removal. Use forceps to remove the opened ligating clip from the surgical site.
- Alignment of the remover jaw is critical for safe removal of the clip. If this is not done, the ligating clip legs may not disengage. Proper maintenance, care and cleaning are necessary to ensure proper functionality.
- It is the responsibility of the user to determine adequate opening of the ligating clip for safe removal of the clip from the vessel or anatomic structure
