ISO 9713:2002 Preview
Neurosurgical implants -- Self-closing intracranial aneurysm clips
This standard was last reviewed and confirmed in 2012. Therefore this version remains current.
ISO 9713:2002 describes characteristics of self-closing aneurysm clips intended for permanent intracranial implantation and specifies requirements for marking, packaging, sterilization and for labelling and accompanying documentation. In addition it gives a method for the measurement of closing force.
ISO 9713:2002 is not applicable to malleable clips, or clips intended to be used during the course of surgery and removed before wound closure (temporary clips).
