Instruments and Devices for Vaginal Prolapse Repair.

Instruments and Devices for Vaginal Prolapse Repair.
Various instruments and retention devices for correction of a vaginal prolapse. At the top is a Buehner needle and a coil of braided Buehner tape for the placement of a purse string suture (used only when the cow is not pregnant because removal is difficult); toggle devices are used in sets of three or four; hog rings are used bilaterally for a bootlace pattern; the dark red device is a U-saver, a retention device for vaginal prolapse in ewes [the center paddle portion is inserted vertically, then turned 90 degrees, after which the two ends are tied to the wool].
