Obstetric Forceps

Obstetric Forceps are specialized obstetrical instruments that are used to reach inside the female vagina and grab the fetal head to pull it out during assisted vaginal delivery. They are employed for cases of obstetric complications including inadequate maternal contractions, Antepartum hemorrhage, and macrosomic baby or to expedite delivery in cases of maternal morbidity or mortality.

Obstetric forceps consist of two blades, a locking mechanism and two handles. The blades are specially curved to align with the female pelvis and the fetal head. The surgeon inserts one blade through the vulva and along the vaginal wall to adjust it against the fetal head. The other blade is then inserted opposite to it and the lock is clicked into place to grip the fetal head and pull it out of the mother’s vagina. Surtex instruments obstetric forceps are available in a variety of shapes and sizes designed to suit different medical purposes such as the Wrigleys Obstetric Forceps, specially designed with a smaller handle to extract the baby at the pelvic outlet.

Another commonly employed obstetric forceps is the Keilands obstetrical forceps, which has longer shanks, and a specialized sliding lock to rotate a malpresenting fetus for successful vaginal delivery. We also design a variety of other forceps including mid cavity and outlet forceps designed to cater to a different obstetric needs.
