Surgical hemostats are designed for use in cardiovascular, urologic, orthopedic, and general surgery indications to control bleeding. They are also called blood vessel forceps and are used for controlling hemorrhage. They are also called hemostats or hemostat forceps. Hemostat forceps are available in a variety of sizes. Straight and curved designs are available. Surgical hemostats are used by medical professionals in their practice.

They look like needle-holder forceps. The main difference is that the beaks of the hemostatic forceps are longer and more slender. They may have both curved and straight beaks or tips. All hemostat forceps have a locking device on the handle to keep them closed as they are used as vessel clamps. They have transverse serration on beak tips. They have a box hinge and a locking mechanism by the finger rings.



Importance of surgical hemostats

  • All the hemostatic forceps are designed to grab, hold, and crush.
  • They are used for holding blood vessels.
  • They are used for blunt dissection.
  • These forceps are used in surgery to control hemorrhage by clamping or constricting blood vessels.
  • In dental surgery, they are more used to remove bits of bone chips or parts of teeth, from the oral cavity during the tooth removal.
  • They are used to control bleeding to ensure effective closure of surgical wounds and which in turn help in avoiding serious or life-threatening complications which include tissue damage, blood loss, infection and excessive scarring.
Types of hemostatic forceps
  • Mixter Forceps: Mixter forceps are useful for dissecting around venous structures. They are the threading forceps used for hemostatic purposes.
  • Mosquito Forceps: Mosquito forceps are used for more delicate tissues. They are very fine and straight or curved hemostatic forceps used during the surgery to control the bleeding of finer vessels or compressing a bleeding vessel.
