Abstract

I have long felt the need of a pair of scissors which would enable me to remove stitches from wounds more rapidly than do ordinary scissors and at the same time with less inconvenience to the patient. The average surgical scissors are too heavy for the removal of stitches, and they often permit the sutures to slip over the end of the engaging blade.

The scissors here illustrated enable one to remove stitches from the conjunctiva, lids, mastoid, turbinate, etc., with a minimum of pain.
