Purpose / Use

Commonly referred to as alligator- or crocodile-forceps, it has a slender body (to allow for restricted access) and small grasping blades which are hinged close to the distal (working) end

It is a metallic device available in various sizes/lengths; some types may include an integrated suction channel

This is a reusable device intended to be sterilized prior to use.
