Maingot hysterectomy forceps are specialized surgical instruments used in gynecology and obstetrics by surgeons to manipulate and grasp heavy tissues within the pelvis, particularly the uterus and its ligaments, during a hysterectomy procedure.


Here's a breakdown of the key features of Maingot hysterectomy forceps:

  • Curved jaws: Designed to conform to the anatomical shape of the pelvic cavity for optimal access and control.
  • Vertically grooved jaws: Enhance clamping for a secure hold on tissues.
  • Terminal teeth: Provide additional gripping power to prevent slippage.
  • Elongated shafts: Allow for reaching deep into the surgical field.
  • Available in both straight and curved profiles: Offer versatility for different surgical approaches during a hysterectomy.


Maingot hysterectomy forceps are typically made from high-quality stainless steel for durability and can be sterilized for reuse in multiple procedures.
