Luc's forceps

Lets start with instruments used in surgical procedures of Otorhinolaryngology..

Firstly, lets talk about Luc's forceps.

This instrument has a fenestrated tip with sharp blades to hold
and grasp a tissue and cut it. So basically it is used for cutting.

Uses:
1. As the name suggests, it is used in Caldwell- Luc's operation (Anterior antrostomy) for removing antral mucosa. 
2. Submucosal Resection of nasal septum. (to remove bone or cartilage from the septum required for a graft)
3. Polypectomy  
4. Turbinectomy

Thats all
