A Lane tissue forceps is a surgical instrument used for grasping and manipulating tissues, particularly tough ones like fascia and cartilage. It has several key features:

  • Straight jaws: The jaws are straight, unlike the curved jaws of other forceps, which makes them better suited for grasping flat tissues.
  • Serrated teeth: The jaws have fine teeth that help to grip the tissue securely without tearing it.
  • Ratcheted handles: The handles are often ratcheted, which allows the surgeon to lock the forceps in place with one hand, leaving the other hand free to perform other tasks.
