Tenaculum One

Proper Use

Be gentle to the tenaculum, and it will be gentle to your patient.

While offering significant potential advantages, the advanced composite material of the single-use Tenaculum 356T requires different handling from its stainless steel counterpart:

GYN Disposables

Make sure the single-use Tenaculum 356T grasps adequate tissue, a larger bite than that required with traditional stainless steel tenaculums.

   
GYN Disposables

Flexible arms allow the tips to travel along the path of least resistance.
In typical use, the tips will not come together.

   
GYN Disposables

Lock the instrument.
When the ratchet is fully closed, compress the tabs straight downward to lock in proper position.

   
GYN Disposables

Apply slow, gentle traction.
Rapid motion will cause the arms to flex and the tenaculum to release
the tissue.

   
GYN Disposables

Unlock the single-use Tenaculum 356T without twisting.
Pull straight up on the handle of the tenaculum at the base of the tabs
to release.
