Spencer Wells ForcepsHR424
Our Blink Medical Spencer Wells Forceps are the design innovation of English surgeon Thomas Spencer Wells.
This design eliminates the gap between the handles of the forceps in order to prevent arteries and tissues being entangled. The jaws of the forceps were also shortened and were given strong ridged teeth to improve compression and grip. It was found that compression could seal small blood vessels permanently.
Spencer Wells forceps could be applied to larger vessels which could then be stitched later rather than being done immediately.
