I have had made by Kny-Scherer a new instrument which may be of interest to readers of The Journal. It is a combined pair of scissors and mouse-toothed forceps. It is to be used by the first assistant in picking up structures to be sutured, drawing the needle through after it has pierced the structure and cutting the suture at the desired moment. It will be seen at a glance that this obviates the use of two and possibly three instruments to accomplish the same thing—namely, a thumb-forceps, a hemostat and a pair of scissors.
