Denis Brown Tonsil Holding Forcep
This instrument is used in tonsillectomy operations. Tonsil holding forceps are long and sturdy with the shaft bent at an angle to the handle. The tips are cup-shaped with holes.
Tonsil holding forceps are used to hold the tonsil during tonsillectomy. The tonsil is grasped gently and then pulled medially. This step helps hold the tonsil away from its bed to facilitate dissection and prevent injury to structures in the bed of the tonsil.
The cup-shaped tip of the upper arm fits into the tip of the lower arm in the case of tonsil holding forceps.
