Cook Medical G02587 - NEEDLE, BREAST, KOPANS MOD, DKBL-20-9.0-A, EACH
Kopans Breast Lesion Localization Needle
The Kopans Breast Lesion Localization Needle consists of a bevel-tip needle with centimeter markings and a hookwire. The hookwire features a burnish mark that allows the operator to ensure that the hookwire is within the needle tip during needle manipulation.
- Bevel-cut needle tip guides the needle to the optimum position for placing the localization hook wire.
- Reference burnish mark, when visible just outside the needle hub on the spring-hook wire, provides visual assurance that the hook wire is within the needle tip during needle manipulation.
- Needle is marked in 1 cm increments for depth guidance during a procedure.
- The reinforced tip of the spring-hook wire serves as a visual and palpable landmark for the surgeon to gauge distance to the lesion during dissection and reduces the risk of severing the hook wire.
Used for preoperative marking of nonpalpable breast lesions.
