Surgical Instruments – Artery Forceps
Artery forceps, also known as hemostats or clamps, are surgical instruments used to occlude or clamp blood vessels, preventing bleeding during surgical procedures. These forceps are commonly used in a variety of surgical specialties, including general surgery, cardiovascular surgery, neurosurgery, and gynecology.
Artery forceps come in a range of sizes and styles, with varying tip shapes and locking mechanisms. The most common type of artery forceps is the Kelly clamp, which has a straight or curved tip and a ratcheted locking mechanism that allows the surgeon to control the amount of pressure applied to the vessel.
Other types of artery forceps include the Mosquito clamp, which has a fine, pointed tip and is often used in delicate surgical procedures, and the Rochester-Pean clamp, which has a broader, serrated tip and is used for clamping larger vessels.
Artery forceps are typically made of stainless steel and can be sterilized for reuse. They are an essential tool in surgical procedures that involve cutting or manipulating blood vessels.
