Bipolar electrosurgical forceps are provided with dual irrigating tubes that deliver irrigating liquid to the opposed surfaces of the tips of the forceps to prevent the sticking of body tissue to the tips. To reduce the manufacturing costs of the forceps and enable the forceps to be single use, disposable forceps, each tube of the dual irrigating tools is a plastic tube adhered along one of the opposing surfaces of the pair of forceps arms. Each tube also has a flat nozzle at the distal end of the tube that disburses irrigating liquid across the opposed surfaces of the forceps arm distal and tips.

A surgical instrument handle having a cam-actuated system is disclosed. The surgical instrument handle includes a rotating member that defines a cam-actuating surface operatively engaged with a locking member, which is fixedly engaged to a reciprocating member for moving the reciprocating member between a retracted and extended positions. The cam-actuating surface of the rotating member is configured to permit the locking member to slide along the cam-actuating surface such that the tangential angle along the point of contact between the locking member and the cam-actuating surface is maintained at a predetermined angle.
