Surtex X EdgeTM scissors permit minimum force but confer maximum cutting strength in all types of soft tissues or material even after pro-longed use. Cartilage is a special tissue that carries both hardness and elasticity, it is considered a challenging tissue that requires a highly specific instrument to pierce. Surtex Instruments manufacture a specifically crafted scissor that is designed for this purpose. Surtex Cartilage scissor has two blades, a triangular thick blade with a very thin sharp tip and edges that are designed to pierce the cartilage, and a flat blunt blade for support and prevention of adjacent tissue damage. McIndoe cartilage scissor is one of the most common product from the Surtex range used for orthopedic and rhinoplasty surgeries.
