CareFusion has released its new Snowden-Pencer take-apart laparoscopic scissors. The modular devices were created for easy disassembly and the handles are compatible with other Snowden-Pencer take-apart laparoscopic instruments like dissectors and clamps.
The single-use scissors come with their own insulated shaft to reduce how much cleaning needs to be done.
The handle is designed to more evenly distribute pressure than traditional handles and accommodates a variety of hand positions for comfort and precision during surgery.
To ensure the new scissors meet customer requirements, CareFusion conducted a limited market release to test the scissors in surgical procedures. After evaluation by more than 30 surgeons who performed approximately 60 procedures, the scissors received high levels of customer satisfaction and 100 percent of surgeons who evaluated the product indicated they would recommend it to peers.
Newly engineered and tested for use on various surgical materials and for consistent mixed hot and cold cutting without snagging, the scissors also come with the reassurance of a warranty against manufacturing defects.
Snowden-Pencer scissors are available in Curved Metzenbaum and Mini-Metzenbaum configurations in both 36 millimeter and 45 millimeter sizes. A hook-blade configuration will be available within the next few months.
