The GPC lane bone holding forceps have the purpose of grasping and manipulating entire bones or bone fragments in order to reduce a fracture. These forceps also secure a bone in place while applying orthopedic implants, available with or without ratchet mechanisms on the end of the handles. Ratchets prevent slippage but can also exert excessive force and crush bone. Despite this caveat, ratcheted forceps are more useful than plain forceps.
