  • Patent number: 5019092
    Abstract: A vascular clamp particularly suitable for use in liver transplant surgery. The free ends of pivoted handles arch toward each other and connect to the middle of elongate curved jaws which lie in substantially parallel planes when the handles are in the normal clamping position. The curvature of the jaws, projected into the parallel planes, decreases toward the ends farthest from the handles, and coincides at the other end with an arc, the extension of which smoothly merges near the pivoted connection with the handles. A bridge member joining the jaws to the handles prevent sutures from entangling on the clamp and reduces bending of the jaws at the juncture with free ends of the handles.
