Hemostasis forceps can be protected with a clamp in 2 ways: by applying the tip of the bleeding vessel, or by closing the vessel in the grips of its jaws. The tip way of doing it will ditch minimum of devitalized in the wound, The jaw technique way gives a better tip to trap the ligature more easy. clamp a pedicle to be transected, placing the clamps with their tips aimed toward one another leaves the tips in position for holding the suture around the tissue.
Holding the hemostat forceps with a three-point grip provides better security and accuracy during unclamping. A few forcep clamps can be griped in the hand that your using to secure with If the situation is noncritical and the exposure is good.
When moving the forceps clamp which holds a vessel to be tied, 1st hold the clamp far from the tissue, and then lower it almost parallel to the tissue when the ligature is placed in its correct spot. Trap the back of the encircling ligature by pushing the tip away from the half hitch being thrown. When tying off the tip, maneuver the clamp to provide the doctor with the greatest exposure of the tip. As the first 1/2 hitch is tightened, gently open the clamp to prevent the tissue from leaving out of the ligature.
In less serious situations, forcep clamps can be held without putting your fingertips through the rings, thus giving greatest mobility during positioning and removal. Palmed forcep clamps are more simple to discard as oppose to a clamp held with fingers in the rings.
Sometimes forcep clamps can be used for blunt dissection by probing layers of tissue, spread the tissue using the jaws, or by raking tissue aside to give underlying structures.
Forceps can hold the tissue securly, they are very effective retracting surgical instruments, useful in moving layers of tissue or in maneuvering a mass to give dissection around it. A clamps the spreads (also known as a spread clamp) can elevate a layer of tissue to be transected while protecting structures deep to the dissection.
