Medical & Surgical Scissors
Medical scissors are not only used in the operating theatre, but also in daily life in the surgery. Since these instruments are used for many different purposes, they are available in a wide range of sizes with varying scissor blades. The shape of each scissor is tailored to its intended use. Whether curved, straight or with an angled head - at Praxisdienst, you will find medical scissors for every need.
Thanks to their robust build, these surgical instruments are particularly suited for snipping tissue and cutting dressings and suture. The scissors not only come into use in the operating theatre, but also in hospital stations and general practices. Operation scissors are available as a straight or curved version and can be bought with different kinds of blades.
The standard pointed-blunt surgical scissors are ideal for cutting tissue and medical accessories. Surgery scissors that are purely meant for use in the operating theatre are equipped with pointed-pointed scissor blades, while dissecting scissors tend to be blunt-blunt. At Praxisdienst, you will find reusable surgical scissors made from stainless steel as well as disposable scissors that can be thrown away after use to prevent cross-contamination and infectious transmissions.
Ligature scissors can easily snip surgical suture and thin surgical wire. The surgical instruments often have a notch on the upper end of the blade, with which the thread can be lifted and held quite easily. As a result, the suture can be snipped quickly and safely, without pulling on the surrounding tissue.
With bandage scissors, dressing material can not only be quickly and easily cut to the proper size, but these scissors are also ideal for cutting dressings that need to be removed or changed. The bandage shears are conceived so as not to injure the patient when cutting the dressing.
For this, one of the scissor blades is fitted with a safety nose, which helps lift the dressing in a smooth manner without causing injury. The Lister bandage scissors are particularly popular. They are equipped with an angle between the blades and handle to allow for particularly easy guiding without hurting the patient's skin.
The micro scissors, or spring scissors are particularly delicate medical supplies that are used whenever the medical professional needs to make especially small and precise cuts. In contrast to regular scissors, the blades of micro scissors are closed by pushing the handles together. This mechanism allows for instrumentation in cavities with particularly narrow access.
Metzenbaum scissors are surgery scissors with a particularly long handle to open and close short blades. Since the blades don't spread as wide as with regular scissors, surgeons can use them to make cuts deep within the patient's body.
