Product WECK Hem-o-lok¿¿ Non-absorbable Polymer Ligation Clips, Rx Only, Sterile, Teleflex Medical, RTC, NC 27709. The use of the reusable Teleflex Medical metal ligating clips is transient, invasive and intended for the application of hemostatic clips during general open surgery. Ligation clips are non-absorbable to thermostatically restrict flow of fluids within vessels. Clips are removed from the cartridge and applied in such a manner as to engulf vessels. Teleflex Medical metal ligating clips are intended for use in procedures involving vessels or anatomic structures for which the surgeon determines ligating clips are the best choice. Surgeons should select the size type, and material of the clip based upon their experience, judgment and needs.
