Forceps, Biopsy, Rigid Endoscopic

Definition : Forceps used to seize, cut, and collect biopsy specimens from tumors or other diseased tissue when attached to a specially designed rigid endoscope during endoscopic surgical and diagnostic procedures. They consist of two joined handles, each attached to a sampling jaw (with smooth, serrated, or toothed-jaw cutting edges), and a stabilizing needle or spike between the sampling jaws to seize and stabilize the specimen. They can be reusable or single use. In hot biopsy, the sampling jaws are electrically warmed before collecting the specimen sample; these forceps have a diathermic handle.
