As we begin our surgical studies, it is essential to get to know the various surgical instruments. All of these surgical instruments are well shaped and easy to use. Many of them were invented or modified by famous surgeons. Today, let's learn about disposable grasping forceps.

In addition to this, there is a clamp, Allis clamp, tissue clamp / mouse teeth clamp; sponge forceps, sponge clamp / holding forceps.

There are subtle differences between the two.

Disposable grasping forceps are used to grasp tissues just like tongs. Clamps , on the other hand, are used to block or clamp down on a luminal structure ( i.e Clamps are gentle on tissue. For eg, if you have a bleeding vessel in need of repair, you apply clamps at either For eg, if you have a bleeding vessel in need of repair, you apply clamps at either ends to prevent blood leaking during the repair job.

Simply put, disposable grasping forceps are used to hold and lift tissue (in practice, toothless sponge forceps are used to hold and pass instruments, and toothed sponge forceps are used to hold and lift tissue but without closing the clamps), and clamps are used to hold and fasten lumen-like structures to restrict the flow of contents (such as hemostatic forceps).

towel clamp, used to hold surgical towels. There are two types, one with a blunt rounded tip and the other with a sharp tip that can pierce the skin, also known as penetrating towel clamp.

Mosquito, Hemostat, Kelly, Tonsil, are mainly used for blunt dissection and for clamping vessels. Depending on the size of the vessel, different size vascular clamps are needed.

Another instrument used to hold the intestine is the intestine clamp, which is more flexible and has a flattened, non-toothed blade to minimize injury.

Allis clamp, suitable for clamping muscles or fascia.

Right Angle clamp, used to free and bypass important vessels or tubes.

Kocker clamp, used to lift the fascia when closing the abdominal cavity and to hold the tissue to be removed.

The variety of surgical instruments is very complex and can be subdivided into more elaborate instruments for each department.
