These were one of the first ratchet forceps ever designed and are still very
useful. They are often used in pairs for clamping an artery before dividing
it. The cut ends of the artery are then tied off, and the forceps removed
(carefully!). Sir Thomas Spencer Wells (1818–1897) was a surgeon at the
Samaritan Free Hospital for Women and Children, London, UK. He was
one of the earliest surgeons to make use of anaesthetics in operation.
