In everyday routine surgeries, surgeons need precise and high-quality scissors for the quick and correct cutting experience. So, getting an excellent instrument for cutting the skin or soft tissues may benefit the surgeons in many ways. Mayo Scissors are effective for cutting purposes during multiple surgeries.
Mayo Dissecting Scissors are used to cut fascia (A sheet or band of connective tissues beneath the skin that stabilizes, attaches, and separates muscles and internal organs). These surgical scissors are also used to expose the coracoid for the purpose of inserting the coracoclavicular ligaments at the coracoid base. Apart from these uses, surgeons can use these scissors according to their preferences.
Types of May Scissors
Mayo scissors are manufactured in various sizes and models to help surgeons in multiple cutting tasks. Here, the types of these surgical scissorsare summarized with respect to their uses. The scissors are crafted in a curved or straight pattern. Some types are listed below:
Curved-Bladed Mayo Scissors: The curved-bladed scissors are helpful in cutting the round ligament. These scissors allow deeper penetration into the skin as compared to straight-bladed. They are also used to cut thick body tissues found in the foot, breast, muscles, and uterus. These scissors are also used for dissection purposes.
Straight-Bladed Mayo Scissors: These scissors are used for cutting body tissues near the wound surface. These surgical scissors are also helpful for cutting sutures because they are also named “suture scissors”.
Mayo SuperCut Dissecting Scissors: These dissecting scissors are used to cut tough tissues. They are manufactured with beveled blades to ensure effective cutting of tissues.
Standard Pattern: These scissors have semi-blunt pointed tips. These features make them unique from other scissors. The middle section is slightly narrower, which ensures a strong grip over the instrument.
The scissors may also be manufactured in other sizes, short, long, medium, delicate, or heavy. Most frequently, these scissors and Metzenbaum scissors are frequently used for tissue cutting.
