Artery Forceps

Artery forceps (also known as hemostatic forceps, vascular forceps, or clamp) is a basic surgical instrument that is commonly used in the field of medicine. During a surgical procedure, blood vessels may rupture and leak blood that obscure the surgical field.

Sometimes, such leakage may result in significant blood loss that endangers patient’s safety.  Surgeons, in these situations, use artery forceps to firmly grasp and clamp the bleeding vessel to stop blood leakage.

Surtex Instruments follow international ISO standards as a guide to ensure the patters are consistent with establish norms. An artery forceps manufactured by Surtex Instruments resembles a scissor, it has 2 blades and 2 handles joined by an expertly crafted pivot or a box joint. Each blade (or jaw) has transverse precision serrations as well as a groove on its inner surface specifically designated to ensure perfect gripping. Surtex provides surgeons with various blade curvatures and lengths to optimize their performance.  The joint joining blades and handles may be a specially-designed pivot joint where a screw forms its axis, or a perfectly-manufactured box joint where one blade passes into the slot of the other blade. Handlesare composed of a shank, a catch (or ratchet), and a finger bow.

Shanks lie between the joint and the finger bows. Ergonomic finger bows (or rings) are crafted for holding the forceps. Between the shank and the finger bow lies a ratchet which is precision engineered for locking the forceps. Each ratchet comes with 3 precisely-made catches; the first is used for grasping, the second for clamping, and the third for crushing the tissue. When the ratchet is pressed, the two blades are locked and kept in closed position.

Such firm locking allows surgeons to leave the artery forceps on the bleeding vessels for a long time adequate for hemostasis.

Surtex Instruments provides surgeons with professionally designed artery forceps for clamping arteries, veins, or capillaries and gripping them for ligation. They are precision-engineered for impeccable grasping of sutures, surgical and prosthetic materials, and other tissues. For proper handling of Surtex Instruments artery forceps, the thumb and the ring finger are placed through the ergonomic rings of the forceps, the index finger is placed along the well-designed shaft and, together with the middle finger, steadies the instrument. For grasping or ligation, Surtex Instruments artery forceps is to be applied with the distal-most part of its blade past the selected vessel or tissue. This is performed to facilitate ligation via applying a tie around the distal end of the forceps.

Only the precise-gripping serrations are to be applied to the grasped vessel. Another important note to be mentioned about the proper technique of Surtex Instruments forceps use is the pressure applied when grasping a vessel. Surtex Instruments forceps are optimized to allow surgeons to smoothly and efficiently control the pressure applied when grasping an artery; surgeons can professionally avoid too much force that may crash the vessel and too little pressure may not stop bleeding. Due to their precision, reliability, and consistency, Surtex Instruments forceps are optimizedto ensurethe surgeon will not grasp a nearby soft tissue along with the vessel to avoid insecure ligation and re-bleeding.
