Surgical Grasping Instruments are essentially classified into two types:
Forceps Ring: Also called hemostat clamp, arterial forceps, hemostatic forceps and locking forceps.
Forceps for the thumb: Frequently called tweezers or pinning forceps.
Also known as hemostats or locking forceps, are instruments used for gripping, holding tightly, or applying traction on objects, particularly during delicate surgeries. Hemostatic forceps typically feature a locking mechanism known as a ratchet that is utilised for clamping. With each ratchet increment, the jaws of the locking forceps gradually draw together. Locking hemostatic forceps, sometimes known as clamps, are used to keep tissue in place. They are known as hemostats when they are used to control blood flow. Hemostats are typically employed to compress blood vessels or other tubular systems in order to restrict the flow of blood or fluids.
Ring Forceps Types:
Crile Forceps with Hemostatic Crile Forceps, commonly known as Crile hemostats, are fantastic surgical tools from Peak Surgiclas. They have a razor-sharp blade with horizontal serrations and are excellent tools. They come in a number of styles, including Curved and Straight forceps. They are used to secure tissue or blood vessels prior to ligation or cauterization. They are also used to dissect tissues during laparotomy procedures.
The Rochester-Pean hemostatic surgical forceps have fully serrated jaws. The name “Big Kelly” refers to this instrument. The peans are routinely employed to constrict vessels during surgical procedures to control bleeding.
Allis Tissue Forceps are utilised in a variety of surgical procedures. The Allis Tissue Forcep is a surgical tool with sharp teeth used to grip and hold hefty tissues. Allis tissue Forceps are only used to remove tissue since they can cause injury to sensitive tissues.
Rochester-Oschner Forceps: These Hemostats are used to clamp off blood vessels during procedures such as orthopaedic surgery to reduce bleeding. These powerful forceps are intended for clamping big vessels or grabbing dense tissue. These ring-handled forceps are available in a number of lengths to assist with a variety of situations.
Rochester-Carmalt Forceps: These forceps have longitudinal serrations and cross-serrated ends on the jaws. These hemostatic ring-handled forceps are intended to grab major blood arteries and stop bleeding. They can be used for a number of procedures, including holding an ovarian pedicle, and have straight or curved jaws.
Kelly Forceps: These hemostats are useful for holding tissue or clamping larger vessels. The look of Rochester forceps and Kelly hemostats is similar. Kelly hemostats, on the other hand, have serrations that are shorter. Rochester thermostats can go a little deeper.
Hartman Mosquito Forceps: The Hartman Mosquito forceps have fine, short tips and a serrated jaw. Hartman Mosquito hemostats are employed as hemostats for clamping small blood vessels and fine tissue dissection when the incision is shallow. They can be used to retain fine sutures or to constrict small blood arteries. The Halsted Mosquito Forceps are a shorter, lighter hemostat.
Thumb forceps are used in surgical procedures to compress, hold, grasp, or manipulate body tissue and to handle sterile dressings. Thumb forceps are divided into two types:
(I): Dressing Forceps
(II): Tissue Forceps
Tissue forceps often contain teeth that enable a greater hold on tissues while causing less tissue damage.
Type of Thumb Forceps:
Adson Tissue Forceps: Forceps having teeth at the tip that are used to handle dense tissue, such as skin closures. These ratcheted devices, sometimes known as locking forceps, are used to hold tissue or objects.
Bonn Tissue Forceps: These forceps are designed for delicate work and are widely used during ocular surgery to preserve or grip certain tissues.
Iris Forceps: Iris forceps, like Bonn tissue forceps, are used in ophthalmology.
Foerster Tissue Forceps: The Foerster forceps are a great choice when a firm grip and little tissue trauma are required. The octagonal keyhole in the handle of these serrated forceps allows positional control.
