Duval lung forceps are surgical instruments specifically designed for grasping and holding lung tissue during thoracic surgeries. Their delicate yet firm grip is crucial for procedures involving lung resection (removal of a portion of lung tissue), biopsy (tissue sample extraction), or lobectomy (removal of an entire lobe of the lung). 


These forceps typically come in lengths ranging from 8 to 9 inches and feature wide jaws with varying shapes and textures to ensure a secure hold without causing excessive damage to the fragile lung tissue. Some variations include:

  • Triangular jaws for a larger grasping surface and distributed pressure
  • Serrated edges for a stronger grip
  • Fenestrated jaws with openings to reduce weight and improve visibility


Duval lung forceps are reusable instruments made from high-quality surgical stainless steel. They can be sterilized after each use for future procedures.
