Until the development of the SuperBypass instrument series, our standard platform tipped forceps occasionally disturbed the flow of the procedures because the tip lacked a slip-resistant surface. Despite our standard forceps' acceptable performance most of the time, many times I was forced to adjust the forceps' grip on either the suture or the needle as I lost control of it.

By extending the platform length to 7mm and 10mm and changing the metallic chemistry of the tips we have created instruments with superior gripping ability. The SuperBypass forceps provides the ultimate control in procedures where manipulation of sutures within narrow and deep areas is also limited to single direction movement. We can now perform P2 bypass and basilar artery anastomosis using the long, straight SuperBypass instruments, while the bayonetted version further moderates the challenge of suturing in tight quarters under the surgical microscope.
