What Are Littauer Scissors?
Posted on May 30 2012
Surgical scissors come in many different sharpness, shapes and sizes each specifically designed for a different purpose. For example, bandage scissors feature sharp angled blades that easily slip underneath dressings for quick, efficient removal.
Littauer scissors feature a hook-shaped blade that easily slides under a suture without it slipping off the end of the blade as it is being cut. These suture scissors are commonly used in both human medicine and veterinary medicine, as they serve the same purpose in both situations.
Littauer Scissors can be purchased separately, or in an all-inclusive suture removal kits, and can be sterilized for continued use. With their unique curved design, Littauer Scissors make suture removal easy and efficient…which is a good thing for both doctor and patient!
