Item # FOERSTERS | SKU # 87-2195
Commonly used in surgical procedures to hold gauze squares that will absorb excess fluids and blood from the surgical site or hemostasis, our Sklar Foerster Sponge Forceps have a ratcheted locking mechanism of these finger ring forceps securely grip the gauze and hold it in place.
Foerster sponge forceps are often used in bariatric surgeries because of their longer length, and the curved version may be used for removing the placenta in OB/GYN procedures. May also be known as Foerster-Ballenger Sponge Forceps.
Model No. 87-2195: Straight with oval, fenestrated, serrated tips and a length of 9-1/2 inches. Made of Stainless Steel.
