With their slender shaft and handle, Calvian endo-pen® bipolar forceps improve the maneuverability of the endoscope. Hence, the instruments offer an ideal solution for bipolar coagulation, for example in endonasal and transnasal endoscopic surgery.
The forceps-like handle enables surgeons to work with these instruments just as with their usual micro instruments - no assembly, no loose parts. The tips of the Calvian endo-pen® bipolar forceps allow not only precise coagulation, but also grasping and manipulating of tissue.
"The angled, thin tips of the Calvian endo-pen® bipolar forceps proved to be very effective and precise for soft tissue coagulation to achieve hemostasis. Moreover, the instrument is helpful for outward dissection in separating normal from tumor tissue. Its easy intraoperative handling and precise coagulation make it a promising instrument for EETS for central skull base pathologies. With its slender shaft and fine tips, the instrument offers all the characteristics required for minimally invasive endonasal surgery."

Our Calvian endo-pen® non-stick bipolar forceps combine the benefits of the Calvian endo-pen® bipolar forceps with our SuperGliss® non-stick technology. A specially developed material prevents overheating of the tips during coagulation. Laboratory test confirm the non-stick properties of the instrument.* The bayonet model of the Calvian endo-pen® bipolar forceps is now available in a shorter version with a working length of 9 cm (3.5“).
