Monopolar Forceps with Cable
Monopolar forceps with cable are surgical instruments used in electrosurgery, which involves the use of electrical currents to cut, coagulate, or vaporize tissue during a surgical procedure. They consist of two metal prongs or tongs that are connected to an insulated cable, which is in turn connected to an electrosurgical generator.
During surgery, the monopolar forceps are used to grasp and manipulate tissue, while the electrosurgical generator delivers a high-frequency electrical current to the tissue through the forceps. The electrical current creates heat, which can be used to cut or coagulate the tissue, depending on the surgical goal.
Monopolar forceps with cable come in a variety of shapes and sizes, depending on the specific surgical procedure being performed. They may be straight or curved, and may be designed for specific types of tissue, such as delicate or dense tissue.
Proper training and experience are necessary to use monopolar forceps with cable safely and effectively. Healthcare professionals must be familiar with the specific instrument being used, as well as the potential risks and complications associated with its use. Additionally, care must be taken to ensure that the forceps and cable are properly cleaned and sterilized before each use to prevent the spread of infection.
