Surgical Instruments for Opening & Closing Tissues

Peak Surgicals present this blog post for junior colleagues or those who work with operation theaters but not necessarily in a surgical capacity. This will help them to get familiarize with the surgical instruments used by clinicians to perform surgery for opening and closing tissue again.

Tissue Opening / Cutting

Mechanical cutting equipment such as basic blades and scissors can be utilized, as can technology such as diathermy (monopolar or bipolar) or ultrasound. Often, surgeons must cut through many layers of tissue, and various surgical equipment is required for each layer. As the device develops more complicated, it will certainly become more costly and more difficult to clean. Because this surgical equipment often has sharp edges, it must be handled with care.


Scalpels, which typically consist of a handle and a single-use blade, are also often used for cutting.


There are several varieties of surgical scissors, each having a unique handle length, design, and size. There are curved and straight ends, and each design is ideally suited to certain processes or phases of operations. Nero scissors feature a specific ceramic coating that improves durability, life-cycle cost, anti-glare, cleaning effectiveness, and performance.

Rhoto Micro dissector

Some cutting tools, such as the Rhoton microdissection set, resemble probes rather than sharp instruments. This is due to the tissue being dissected - in Rhoton's case, it is for neurosurgery, and the brain is exceedingly sensitive and delicate. As a result, as compared to muscle, a distinct form and style are necessary.


Diathermy is the use of an electrical current to cut and cauterize tissue. If the location is vascular, this is a good way to halt the bleeding. Monopolar and bipolar are the two types. Monopolar instruments have a single electrode, while bipolar instruments have two.

A machine generates electricity, which is linked to the device used by the surgeon. There is a range of diathermy-suitable instruments available in various sizes and forms to fit a variety of treatments.

Cleaning of Surgical Instruments

Desiccated tissues get attached to instrument surfaces if they are not maintained clean. The coating is quite sensitive (if this is damaged then more tissue can stick to them, which makes it hard for the surgeon to use.) As a result, care must be used during cleaning to avoid scratching the nonstick coating.

Closing Wounds

A suture or a staple is often used to seal a wound. Sutures come in a range of materials and sizes, and needle holders are used to gripping the needle while suturing.

Because there are often many layers of tissue to stitch, a dissolvable suture can be used subcutaneously (under the skin), and a 'standard' suture at the skin level (which would need to be removed by a clinician once the wound has healed.)

Stapling is faster than suturing, but reusable staplers are more sophisticated and may be more difficult to clean.
