Among the haemostatic instruments used in neurosurgery, Raney clips have got several advantages. Surgeons working in low resource setting in developing countries like India could not routinely use Raney clips due to non-availability and relatively high cost. Plastic clips made from barrel of disposable syringe are a viable alternative to Raney clips. Plastic clips made from disposable syringe barrel is very easy to make, since readily available in sterile form autoclaving not needed, non-toxic, non-pyrogenic, transparent, and cheaper than Raney clips. So we consider it as a very cost effective in neurosurgical operation theatres.
