Scissors

All S&T microsurgical scissors are skillfully handcrafted to microsurgical scissors feature: exacting standards. You will immediately notice the advantages of these scissors:

  • Flawless design due to years of experience in the field
  • A uniquely smooth cutting action due to precise engineering
  • Minimum closing pressure in operation due to equal pressure distribution along the blades

S&T Microsurgical Scissors Patterns:

Dissektion
This pattern features curved blades with tips that are rounded to avoid possible damage to structures during dissection.
SDC = scissors, dissection, curved

Adventitia
This pattern features straight blades with tips that are pointed for fine trimming and suture cutting.
SAS = scissors, adventitia, straight

Nerven/Sehnen
This pattern features straight blades with one finely serrated blade, ensuring a controlled even cut when preparing tissue such as nerves or tendons. Due to design characteristics, serrated scissors provide exceptionally smooth cutting action compared to other serrated scissors.
T = nerve, fine serrated

We have the following scissor types on offer:

  • SDA-Type Scissors
    SDA-type scissors were specifically developed for fine line dissection in the extremities and in similar applications. Unlike other dissecting scissors, the blades are straight. These scissors are held between thumb (top position) and index, stabilized with the middle and ring finger. You will immediately notice that handling the scissors in this position is easier than the usual "chuck grip".

  • Serrated Scissors
    The unique design of these handcrafted S&T scissors ensure very smooth movement, despite the serrations. Pay attention to the different machining on the surfaces. For the very best results, the surfaces need to be adapted to their specific functions.

  • Dissecting Scissors
    Microsurgical scissors in the S&T product offering are available in either dissecting or adventitia patterns. The distinction lies in the sharpness of the tips and the curvature of the blades. Dissecting scissors are rounded at the tip with a radius of 0.3 mm, with blades that are slightly curved on the flat. Adventitia scissors are very sharp at the tip, with straight blades.

  • Adventita Scissors
    Microsurgical scissors in the S&T product offering are available in either dissecting or adventitia patterns. The distinction lies in the sharpness of the tips and the curvature of the blades. Dissecting scissors are rounded at the tip with a radius of 0.3 mm, with blades that are slightly curved on the flat. Adventitia scissors are very sharp at the tip, with straight blades.

  • Scissors by Blondeel
    These scissors were designed by Professor Phillip Blondeel for use in breast reconstruction utilizing a perforator flap. While the ring handle configuration makes these suitable as preparation scissors for fine structures, the round handle, spring instrument configuration, with the curved blades, is extremely useful for fine trimming and dissection work. In skilled hands, this instrument will perform tasks for which you might normally need different instruments.

  • Westcott scissors
    S&T Westcott scissors feature finer blades than regular Westcotts, originally used in plastic surgery. the typical shape of the blades remains.

  • Vannas scissors
    Originally designed for ophthalmic procedures, the vannas scissors are applied in vascular surgery, too. They feature finer, smaller and shorter blades.
