A micro-thin forceps and simplified method for the placement of tunnel connective tissue grafts

laschal-surgical-forcepsThis designed instrument by Laschal Surgical represents a significant advancement of the tunnel process for gingival grafting. Because of its patented use of “flexibly resilient” materials, basic engineering principals, and designs, it is atraumatic. The forceps can, therefore, grasp the graft, albeit connective tissue or AlloDerm® (LifeCell™), and pull the graft through the tunnel without the fear of ripping or tearing the tissue that would be associated with uncontrolled operator force.


This completely eliminates or greatly reduces iatrogenic damage and gives the operator total control as the graft is positioned prior to anastomosis.
