Kantor Clamp


The Kantor clamp comprised a shield attached to clamping haemostat forceps. Alleged deficiences are that problems with haemostasis were sometimes experienced and also that, as the clamping device was straight, the crushed-skin "dog ears" created by the use of the clamp did not always disappear, leaving a poor cosmetic result. This is more a matter of technique than design - there is no inherent reason why 'dog ears' should be created by this device any more than with any other 'tug and cut' system.
