Exclusive DUO Surface Finish

Surgical Holdings have utilised their combined expertise and knowledge to introduce a new and exclusive DUO surface finish. By reviewing research and understanding the requirements of their customers they have combined two surface finishes on one instrument. The first maintains anti-glare under theatre lights and the second ensures the best possible cleaning efficacy.

The company’s highly skilled instrument finishers ensure that prior to any final stage finishing, all instruments receive a high-level mopping to remove any imperfections. From there they can then apply:

  • The wet bead blast finish - this technique uses ultra-fine glass beads sprayed at the surface of the instrument to create a matt looking finish.
  • The mirror polish finish - this technique uses a series of mops and compounds to polish the surface up to a mirror finish.

The result is a premium looking instrument that stands out, maintains functionally under theatre lights but above all has been proven to provide benefits against protein adhesion and corrosion.

About Surgical Scissors

Surgical scissors are indispensable tools in the field of surgery, designed for cutting tissues, sutures, and various materials during medical procedures. These precision instruments are essential for ensuring surgical precision, minimising tissue damage, and maintaining a sterile surgical environment. They come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and designs, tailored to meet the specific needs of various surgical disciplines, from general surgery to specialised areas like neurosurgery, ophthalmology, and gynaecology.

One of the most common types of surgical scissors is the Mayo scissors, featuring large, straight blades that are ideal for cutting tough tissues such as fascia and muscle. Iris scissors, with their fine tips and delicate curved or straight blades, are frequently used in ophthalmic procedures to ensure precise and controlled cuts. Metzenbaum scissors, on the other hand, are designed for fine and delicate dissection in soft tissues.

Surgical scissors may have straight or curved blades, depending on the surgical task at hand. Some scissors also come with serrated edges, providing a better grip and control when cutting tissues. The quality of surgical scissors is crucial, as they must remain sharp and durable to withstand repeated sterilisation processes. Titanium and stainless steel are commonly used materials, offering durability, resistance to corrosion, and ease of maintenance.

Advancements in material technology and design have improved the ergonomics and overall efficiency of surgical scissors, contributing to enhanced surgeon comfort and reducing fatigue during lengthy procedures. Additionally, innovations in manufacturing processes and blade coatings have further extended the lifespan of these instruments.

Surgical scissors play a vital role in achieving optimal surgical outcomes. Surgeons and their teams rely on these instruments for precise and controlled cutting, thereby contributing to the overall safety, success, and efficiency of surgical procedures. Their versatility, precision, and constant development make surgical scissors an essential element in modern healthcare and surgical practice.
