Medical - Medical: Instruments / Surgical equipment
Russian term or phrase: Зажимы vs Щипцы
Translating a medical catalogue. The instrument titles listed are:

1) Зажимы
2) Щипцы
3) Пинцеты

According to my online research, these all seemed to be called "forceps" in medical English. But surely there is a way to distinguish them, since they look quite different in the pictures, such as this: http://www.tehnotools.com/products/?ID=33 versus this: http://bone-surgery.ru/view/instrumenty_dlya_zazhima_zahvata...

Are there are accepted medical names for these tools?

Thanks in advance!

Explanation:
Вообще forceps часто используется для всего, но чтобы разделить эти понятия, я бы написал так:
1) Зажимы = clamps
2) Щипцы = forceps
3) Пинцеты = tweezers

Хотя для зажимов forceps также распространено, как и clamps. Вот пример с clamp:
