A MODIFICATION OF BOSWORTH'S NASAL AND AURAL SNARE.

A MODIFICATION OF BOSWORTH'S NASAL AND AURAL SNARE. Long experience with the various snares on the market has demonstrated that while they all have their individual points of excellence, no one snare combines all of the good qualities without some of the bad ones. The accompanying cuts show by comparison, the simplicity and advantages of the Bosworth snare as modified by the author. Instead of the long wire loop, there is substituted a flexible steel stilette, with one end flattened and having a round eye large enough to receive a double thread of No. 5 piano wire; the other end terminates in a circular hook, the central point of which is in line with the long axis of the stilette. The stilette is inserted into the canula of Bosworth's snare with the eye projecting just beyond the distal end, in position for threading with the short loop of wire. The other end is hooked around a screw-post set http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association
