Tonsil Grasping Forceps are ratcheted, finger-ring forceps used in tonsillectomy procedures for grasping tissue during dissection. The ratchet can be used to lock the forceps in the closed position, allowing the operator freedom to perform other steps of the procedure. Surtex Instruments manufacture a comprehensive range of popular tonsil grasping forceps for various indications.
This includes the Denis-Browne Tonsil Holding Forceps, which are used to grip the tonsil medially during dissection. It has blunt non-cutting edges with a box mechanism in the tips, which makes it different from the Luc forceps. Surtex Instruments also manufacture Colver Tonsil Grasping Forceps, which are used to hold the tonsil medially before dissection.
Other forceps manufactured by Surtex Instruments include the Blohmke Tonsil Grasping Forceps, which are designed with serrated ring jaws that have one or two teeth to facilitate the grip. The White Tonsil Grasping Forceps have a serrated border while the Schnidt Tonsil Forceps have serrated flat jaws, and each are designed with a lateral half-curve to allow direct visualization of the grasping blades. The Schnidt Tonsil Forceps are used for placing packing following tonsil removal. Another distinct design manufactured by Surtex Instruments is found in the Museux Tonsil Grasping Forcep, which has two bifurcated blades that facilitate deeper grasps.
All our Surtex Instruments tonsil forceps are thoroughly designed for the highest functionality and comfort of use. They are manufactured from premium quality surgical grade stainless steel and can be sterilized and reused for years of reliable operation in tonsillectomy procedures.
