Thumb forceps are used to grab, or move tissue during surgery, as well as to adjust or replace wound dressings without making direct contact with the injured skin. They can also be used to remove splinters, foreign objects, and debris from wounds, which reduces the likelihood of mistakes and wound irritation.
To understand which surgical forceps you need and make a more informed purchase, take note of the following:
Thumb forceps come in a range of styles, each with its own primary function. Flat, serrated, and cupped forceps are the most frequently used types of thumb forceps and can multitask between various applications. Thumb forceps may also have straight, curved, or angled tips.
Serrated tweezers (also known as serrated forceps) are mainly designed for use with body tissue. As serrated tweezers require less pressure to maintain their grip on an object, they are less likely to damage skin or tissue than smooth forceps. Smooth or cross-hatched forceps, on the other hand, can be used to remove stitches, move small objects, and replace wound dressings.
Hemostatic forceps (also called hemostats, locking forceps, or clamps) are hinged forceps that resemble surgical scissors in appearance. Hemostatic forceps are used to securely hold objects in place or control blood flow. They can come with or without a clamping lock on the tip. When used to grasp and manipulate needles, hinged forceps are then called needle holders.
