The device includes the applicator, clip applier, biopsy brush, manual dermabrasion brush, scrub brush, cannula, ligature carrier, chisel, clamp, contractor, curette, cutter, dissector, elevator, skin graft expander, file, forceps, gouge, instrument guide, needle guide, hammer, hemostat, amputation hook, ligature passing and knot-tying instrument, knife, blood lancet, mallet, disposable or reusable aspiration and injection needle, disposable or reusable suturing needle, osteotome, pliers, rasp, retainer, retractor, saw, scalpel blade, scalpel handle, one-piece scalpel, snare, spatula, stapler, disposable or reusable stripper, stylet, suturing apparatus for the stomach and intestine, measuring tape, and calipers. A surgical instrument that has specialized uses in a specific medical specialty is classified in separate regulations in Parts 868 through 892.
Clamps, Surgical definition: Clamps designed to compress anatomic structures and/or to bring together several isolated objects and/or tissue by pressing, fastening, or binding them firmly during surgical procedures. Surgical clamps are typically handheld, manual instruments including two parts pivoted at the center with blunt (i.e., atraumatic) distal ends. Dedicated surgical clamps are used for directly performing operative procedures directly or for holding ancillary devices in orthopedic, gastrointestinal, vascular, and other surgical procedures.

Clamps definition: Devices designed to compress a structure and/or to bring together several isolated objects and/or anatomic structures by pressing, fastening, or binding them firmly. Clamps are usually handheld, manual instruments with a working end that permits a large jaw opening and a handle and without a preferred resting state; dedicated clamps are available in a variety of shapes and sizes according to the procedure to be performed or the object to be held. Clamps are clinically used as dental, surgical, and postmortem instruments and/or to hold ancillary devices during those procedures; other clamps are intended to hold objects (e.g., test tubes, small instruments).
CLAMP, CANNULA definition: A blood access device and accessories is a device intended to provide access to a patient's blood for hemodialysis or other chronic uses.

The device includes implanted blood access devices, nonimplanted blood access devices, and accessories for both the implanted and nonimplanted blood access devices. (1) The implanted blood access device consists of various flexible or rigid tubes, which are surgically implanted in appropriate blood vessels, may come through the skin, and are intended to remain in the body for 30 days or more. This generic type of device includes various shunts and connectors specifically designed to provide access to blood, such as the arteriovenous (A - V) shunt cannula and vessel tip. (2) The nonimplanted blood access device consists of various flexible or rigid tubes, such as catheters, cannulae or hollow needles, which are inserted into appropriate blood vessels or a vascular graft prosthesis (Secs. 870.3450 and 870.3460), and are intended to remain in the body for less than 30 days. This generic type of device includes fistula needles, the single needle dialysis set (coaxial flow needle), and the single needle dialysis set (alternating flow needle). (3) Accessories common to either type include the shunt adaptor, cannula clamp, shunt connector, shunt stabilizer, vessel dilator, disconnect forceps, shunt guard, crimp plier, tube plier, crimp ring, joint ring, fistula adaptor, and declotting tray (including contents).
