Delicacy of touch and manipulation are an absolute
necessity if the endoscopist is to avoid mortality; therefore, heavily

foreign-body work in the larynx, and for the removal of benign
laryngeal growths, the alligator forceps with roughened jaws shown in

[FIG. 17.--Laryngeal grasping forceps designed by Mosher. For my own
use I have taken off the ratchet-locking device for all general work,
to be reapplied on the rare occasions when it is required.]
