Why Allis forceps are important
Allis forceps are also referred to as Allis clamps because their structure resembles a clamp. This instrument features longitudinal serrated tips that allow the manipulation of sensitive tissues. It comprises finger ring handles with a ratchet locking mechanism for self-locking the jaws of the tool. This also allows surgeons to apply the desired clamping pressure. The finger rings design also enables comfortable handling of the instrument and provides better control over it.
