Abstract

Modifications have been made in the spring hookwire system to facilitate accurate three-dimensional placement and to aid surgeons in gauging the location of the hook with respect to a breast lesion. Difficulties in placement of the needle created by rigid compression systems can be overcome by using a combination of a fenestrated compression plate and a spot-compression device.
