A Takahashi forceps blade broke off during a surgical procedure in which a physician was performing functional endoscopic sinus surgery (septoplasty). The physician was preparing to remove the tissue in the patient’s septum when the top of the blade broke off. Fortunately, no harm was done to the patient. However, this incident highlights the importance of having a properly-fitted instrument in the operating room.
Takahashi forceps are one of the most widely used instruments for surgical procedures on the nose. These forceps help doctors remove excess bony fragments and soft tissue. They are straight and have jaws that measure 2.5 x 8 millimeters. The MiniFESS family of forceps offers surgeons excellent control and positive patient outcomes. They are also easy to use and are available in various bite sizes.
The mechanism for ratchet locking is found in the handles. One handle has an asymmetrically shaped short protrusion near the finger loop. The opposite handle has a corresponding hook. When the forceps are closed, the teeth of each handle engage and hold the jaw surfaces clamped together. Conversely, the teeth disengage when opened, allowing the grasping ends to move apart.
A standard design of these forceps is the bayonet. These forceps are elongated and feature a slight L-shaped bend at the top. They have a reusable plastic handle and are typically made from high-quality stainless steel. In the case of non-locking forceps, they should be sterilized using hot water before being used. It’s also common to find forceps that are weighted.
Surgical specialists often use these forceps. They are commonly held in a pen-like grip with the top end resting on the first dorsal interosseous muscle. Spring in the upper end helps keep the grasping ends apart until pressure is applied, providing an extended pinch. The spring allows doctors to manipulate small objects with ease. These forceps are used for suture placement, to hold the tissue in place during exploratory surgery, and to access confined spaces. Therefore, you will find some of the best ones on the market.
