MM= Grasping and Fixating -- retractor -- vaginal
Description
The retractor consists of a stationary handle and moving parts; possibly chest retractor?; the handle is all of one piece, curving at its bottom into a semicircle, and curving at the top into a long oval tongue, slightly concave; there is a long oval slit down most of the handle's length, through which two flat wing-type pieces of metal protrude, securing the moving parts while allowing it to slide up and down; these attachments connect to another, smaller handle that curves into a "Z" shape, away from the main handle; the tip is wide, round, and corrugated to provide a resting place for a thumb; a large, round threaded knob joins the mini-handle, the main handle, and two round, long arms that extend upwards in a slightly curved "V" shape; these arms slide through two short cylinders on either side of the main handle, securing them; at the upper end of each arm, attached by bolts, is a long metal tongue, slightly concave and rounded at both ends; both ends are bent outwards at 90°; when the mini-handle is pushed up, these tongues move upwards and outwards.

Description
Biopsy punch is a long, thin metal tube that tapers into a thinner cylinder, hollow and terminating in a hooked, cleft prong; the main barrel has two long slots on either side, each with striations and a metal bump underneath; through these slots extend metal arms, tubes bent in a curvy, extended "W" shape (down, up, and outwards); a finger can fit into each on either side; these arms connect to a metal pipe inside the barrel, and move the pipe up and down; the pipe is smooth under the arms, but above them it is threaded like a screw, and this portion extends several cm beyond the flanged top of the barrel; the barrel's slots extend all the way to its top, which is also threaded; a ring-like attachment fits over it and holds it all together; this attachment has a thick, rounded tab, curving down then up, probably meant for a thumb; above this tabbed ring is a thin, corrugated ring, threaded onto the grooves of the main barrel; a short, thick cylinder with metal pipes, rounded at the end and jutting out horizontally at 90° angles to each other is threaded onto the screw-like extension, and controls the movement of the pipe within the barrel; when the pipe is fully extended out the bottom of the barrel, its tip--a rectangular bit, concave on two opposite sided and with an eye like a needle--should protrude a few mm past the pronged end of the barrel.
