What is a Crile instrument?

Crile Hemostatic Forceps are incredible surgical instruments also known as crile hemostats and are generally used to clamp the tissue or blood vessels before ligation or cauterization. They are also used for dissections of tissues during laparotomy procedures.

Are Kelly and Crile the same?

They may look the same, but they are different instruments and should not be substituted. Even though both the Kelly and the Crile hemostats are both 5 ½’ long, the Kelly hemostat has half-serrated jaws, while the Crile has fully serrated jaws. The two serve different purposes.

What is the smallest hemostat?

Mosquito Hemostat
One of the most popular styles, the Mosquito Hemostat has a locking ratchet and is the smallest of hemostats, having the narrowest nose and shortest shaft of any hemostat.

Why are hemostats curved?

A curved hemostat can reach into and under places more easily than a straight hemostat can. Using a curved hemostat also allows a surgeon to grab arteries and veins that have receded slightly after being cut and clamp them to stop the bleeding immediately. Hemostatic forceps are used to control bleeding.

What is Babcock forceps?

Babcock Forceps are finger ring, ratcheted, non-perforating forceps used to grasp delicate tissue. They are frequently used with intestinal and laparotomy procedures. Babcock Forceps are similar to Allis forceps. However, they may be considered less traumatic due to their wider, rounded grasping surface.
