Tissue Forceps are used for grasping, holding, and manipulating various types of tissues in multiple procedures. These instruments have spring tension shanks that ultimately determine how far the instrument will open and the thickness of the tissue that can be held. Some thumb tissue forceps have lesser tension and can only hold fine membranes or single layer tissue. Others have greater tension and can hold thick, heavy tissue. Thumb tissue forceps are commonly toothed in order to grip the tissue more firmly than serrated tips alone. They are available in several lengths to accommodate specific procedures, tissue types, and user preference. This product is straight with 1×2 teeth and a length of 4 inches.
