The length of the shaft can be 14 mm, 18 mm and 21 mm, which are used according to the anatomical proportions of the patient’s uterus and vagina. The tip is also available in different configurations including the blunt tip used to clear the uterus to ensure no parts of the placenta are retained after delivery and a serrated tip, which is used to scrape of any placental parts that do adhere to the uterine wall. The scoops are also employed during laparotomy procedures to remove growths from the body cavities. Our placental scoops are designed in a number of patterns according to patient needs, which include the Cuzzi Placental scoop which is often employed in cesarean sections, dilatation and evacuation and after vaginal delivery to ensure no parts of the placenta remain attached to the uterus. Another commonly used placental scoop in our range is the Pestalozza placental scoop which is employed to remove the adherent parts of the placenta, scraping it smoothly off the uterine wall.
