Tissue Forceps 4.5-5" 1x2 Teeth
Tissue Forceps 5" 1x2" are used for holding a small piece of tissue in place while suturing. The teeth are sharps, so it only requires delicate pressue. When using dressing forceps for the same function (flat edge, no teeth) it's more likely to cause tissue damage as there's a tendency to compress the tissue. Tissue forceps should not be used as "pick ups" as the teeth will become damaged trying to pick up a metal suturing needle.
