Satinsky Clamps

Satinsky Clamps

Satinsky clamps are actually called Satinsky vascular clamps, named after the surgeon who developed them, Dr. Henry Satinsky. They are used in cardiovascular surgeries to temporarily occlude or clamp the vena cava, which is the large vein that carries deoxygenated blood from the lower body back to the heart. This helps surgeons perform procedures on the heart or nearby blood vessels without excessive bleeding.

Satinsky Debakey clamps have a curved design with a ratcheting mechanism that allows them to securely hold the vena cava in place. They are typically made of stainless steel, which makes them durable and resistant to corrosion. The clamps have a smooth surface to minimize trauma to the blood vessels during surgery.
