Surgical clamps and forceps

Surgical clamps and forceps

We offer a wide range of surgical forceps. There are many varieties and surgical applications for clamps. They are an essential tool during surgery where blood flow to an organ must be stopped or controlled. Surgical forceps are divided into several categories: Hart barrel end terminals are made with resilient and sturdy steel jaws that provide low risk of injury to the tissue. Atraumatic forceps have a jaw with a special tooth profile to enable optimum protection of the fabric. We also offer a wide selection of long and short clamps: bulldog clamps, dissecting forceps, tissue grasping terminals, intestinal clamps, peritoneum clamps, and towel forceps to guarantee the optimal fixation of dressings.

Customer information on surgical artery clamps and their use

An artery clamp, also called a vascular clamp, is a medical instrument for short-term grasping and holding of severed blood vessels, for primary hemostasis or before the intended ligature, for example during an operation. At first glance, the clamps have a certain resemblance to surgical scissors and are held like these, but instead of cutting surfaces they have two cross-serrated jaws with detents. They are usually made of stainless steel. There are a variety of modifications or further developments of the arterial clamps, which are often named after their inventor or developer, such as the Kocher clamp (sharp and straight or slightly curved, serrated at the end of the blade) after Emil Theodor Kocher, the Péan clamp (blunt and fluted at the end of the sheet) according to Jules Émile Péan, the Halsted clamp according to William Stewart Halsted (straight or curved, without teeth, also called mosquito clamp) or the Mikulicz clamp according to Johann von Mikulicz. the "rescue clamp". This is a Péan clamp, which has a ring and a hook instead of the two rings on the handle. The hook is used to attach infusion bags or bottles that can be attached with the clamp above the patient. Conversely, things that cannot easily be hung up (e.g. on a ring, a pole, etc.) can be gripped with the clamp and used as a "hanger". There are also arterial clamps that are named according to the type of application, such as abdominal clamp or intestinal clamp. The tissue clamp, which is used to attach surgical drapes to the patient, is not included in the artery clamps.
