Surtex cartilage scissors are renowned for their X EdgeTM technology enabling user to experience a new dimension in cutting and dissecting performance. Surtex X EdgeTM unique leading cutting technology allows scissors to self sharpen as the design ensures the scissor hinge provides spring tension on the two blades so, as they cut material, one blade presses against the other, sharpening the surface as they close.
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.
