Ovum forceps are surgical instruments used in gynecological procedures, specifically designed to grasp, hold, manipulate, and remove tissue from inside the uterus . This includes the ovum (egg) and placenta during in-vitro fertilization (IVF) procedures, as well as for removing products of conception in miscarriage or termination of pregnancy. They can also be used in procedures like caesarean section, hysterectomy,and uterine repair.


Here are some key characteristics of ovum forceps:

  • Fine, atraumatic tips: Designed for gentle grasping and manipulation of ovarian tissues to minimize damage.
  • Available in various sizes and configurations: Cater to specific gynecological needs, ranging from ovarian procedures to fertility treatments.
  • Fenestrated cups: Allow for better visualization of the grasped tissue.
