Hemostatic Forceps

What are the hemostatic forceps?

Hemostatic forceps are intended to control bleeding by clamping and holding blood vessels so cauterization or ligation can be performed.

What are hemostatic forceps used for?

The surgical instrument has ring handles and is used to control blood flow by occlusion. They're also employed to grip or hold tissue during surgery, and most hemostats have a locking ratchet mechanism to keep them closed. They're also known as hemostats or clamps. Serrated hemostatic forceps include Rochester Pean, Crile, Halsted, and Kelly, whereas toothed hemostatic forceps include Allis, Kocher, and Babcock.

What are the types of forceps?

  1. Adson Hemostatic Forceps: These are generally used to stop blood flow by clamping tiny arteries. Tonsils are routinely removed with Adson Hemostatic Clamp.
  2. Dressing Forceps: Tissue forceps feature teeth, whereas dressing forceps have rounded tips. During surgical procedures, this is ideal for retaining gauze and other dressings. The surgeon can keep their gloves cleaner for longer by using forceps to grasp the dressings.
  3. Olsen Hegar Needle Holders: The Olsen Hegar Needle Holders are ideal for physicians who operate alone. With just one hand, you can easily switch between stitching and snipping because of the multi-purpose design. It's critical to use caution so that sutures aren't accidentally clipped too short.
Hemostatic forceps on this page are offered by Surgipro for surgical uses such as occluding blood vessels and manipulating tissues. A hemostat or hemostat clamp may be used to help control bleeding in a surgical environment by seizing the end of blood vessels to help control hemorrhage. Hemostats may also be carried and used by combat medics and paramedics. Hemostatic surgical instrument types include curved hemostats, straight hemostats, curved hemostat forceps, artery forceps and more. Our surgical grade hemostatic forceps are designed with a catch for locking the blades in place and are made with high quality German stainless steel.
