Ramelet hooks have a fine, sharp, angular hook and short, round handle. The hook design facilitates dissection and provides a secure grip on the vein as well as moderate traction during vertical avulsion of the vein. This minimizes the damage to the surrounding tissues and lymphatics.
The handle design allows for the instrument to be rolled between the fingers during dissection. This technique lessens the hand and wrist movements of the clinician during the procedure.
Available in right and left handed patterns.
