What Are Hartmann Crocodile Forceps?

Hartmann Crocodile Forceps, are a specialised type of surgical forceps designed for intricate and precise tissue manipulation. For example, their distinctive design, featuring fine, serrated jaws resembling the jaws of a crocodile or alligator, grants them unparalleled gripping capability and precision.

Key Characteristics and Variants

These forceps are characterised by their slender, elongated design and fine serrations along the inner surface of the jaws, allowing for a secure grip on delicate tissues without causing damage. Various variations of Hartmann Crocodile Forceps exist, each tailored for specific surgical needs. Some may come with straight or curved jaws, while others might have varying lengths or handle designs, offering surgeons optimal control and dexterity during procedures.
