Spring scissors are uniquely designed for ambidextrous use. The action on these surgical scissors allows you to pinch the two blades together. The way they fit into your hand offers great visibility and incredible control.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when selecting spring scissors:
- May be used with either left hand or right hand
- Designed for neurosurgical, vascular and microsurgical uses
- Cuts by shearing, reduces crushing of tissue
- Fine tips are ideal for use in very restricted spaces
- Curved tips are useful to avoid cutting of underlying tissue
- Heavier blades are helpful when a thick tissue or vessel is to be cut
- Length of the scissor tips can help with the depth of the incision:
- Shorter tips for near-to-surface incision
- Longer tips for deep incision
- For delicate surgeries or dissections, micro scissors are extremely practical surgical instrments. Most of these are spring scissors with fine tipped blades. Spring scissors are common surgical instruments that are perfect for left-hand and right-hand used. Micro-scissors have short, fine blades that allow you greater visibility and precision in confined places.
- Hollowing out the handles of long, round-handled instruments decreases the overall weight. This makes them efficient and non-fatiguing. The round shape of the handle also makes these surgical instruments easier to manipulate during surgery. These are our round, hollow handled scissors for small animal surgery.
