Green Armytage forceps are surgical instruments specifically used to grasp and clamp tissue in the uterus, particularly during obstetrical and gynecological procedures.

 

Details of Green Armytage Forceps:

  • Crafted from high-quality stainless steel for durability and easy sterilization.
  • Possess wide blades with horizontal serrations to ensure a firm grip on the uterine tissue.
  • The blades come together at an angle, resembling a clamp.
  • Include locking ring handles and a ratchet mechanism for controlled clamping force and secure hold on the tissue.

Size:

  • Green Armytage forceps typically come in a standard length of around 21 centimeters (approximately 8.25 inches).

 

Applications:

  • Primarily employed in obstetrical procedures like cesarean sections to control bleeding in the uterine wall.
  • Also used in gynecological surgeries such as hysterectomy (uterine removal) and myomectomy (fibroid removal) for grasping and clamping tissues during the procedure.

 

Advantages of Green Armytage Forceps:

  • Secure hold on tissues due to the wide, serrated blades.
  • Ratcheting mechanism allows for controlled clamping pressure, minimizing tissue damage.
  • Relatively simple design facilitates ease of use.
