Non-metallic, bio-compatible hemostatic clips of absorbable or nonabsorbable materials are formed by two legs joined with a resilient hinge. One leg terminates in a hook member which secures the other leg when the clip is closed. The clip applier is a forceps-type instrument having channeled jaws especially adapted to receive and close the clip.
