Cascade HealthCare Products carries a variety of Tenaculum Forceps by Miltex®, König®, and Vantage by Miltex®. Tenaculum Forceps are used to hold onto tissue while also retracting it. Most Tenaculums have some type of teeth on the distal end that will dig into the tissue to insure the tissue will not slip. Tenaculums are used mainly on the cervix, since the uterus and cervix move away when you push an instrument against the cervix or into it, a tenaculum is needed to grasp the sides of the cervix to keep it from moving.

Miltex produces the world's finest grade instruments and sets the standard by which all other brands are compared. Their instruments are German-made of the highest grade European stainless steel. When properly cared for, Miltex instruments can provide exceptional, consistent performance for a lifetime.

König surgical instruments offer outstanding performance, longevity and durability. Brushed stainless steel and German craftmanship are the hallmarks of the König collection. These instruments are designed to withstand the rigors of regular use, and are backed by a lifetime warranty.

Where cost is a concern, the Vantage floor-grade brand of instruments by Miltex is an excellent option. Vantage instruments are guaranteed to be free of defects in workmanship and material. When properly cared for, Vantage brand instruments can provide solid, reliable performance for many years.
