Here are a few FAQs about the instruments included in the Cascade Suturing Kit Deluxe.
Why a pair of Russian Forceps?
The Russian Forceps are used in the non-dominant hand while suturing. Their shape is excellent for marking where to aim the needle, for grasping the needle tip as it comes through the tissue, and for holding tissue without scrunching it.
Why a pair of straight and curved Rochester Pean Forceps?
The curved hemostat is perfect for when you need to get back into a hard-to-reach area - for example, when clamping a spurting vessel prior to tying it off. The straight hemostat works best for covering the needle when not in use.
Why a pair of regular Surgical Scissors and a pair of Spencer Stitch Scissors?
The Spencer Stitch Scissors are great for snipping the suture, especially if you need to remove sutures during the 6 - 8 week visit. The regular Surgical Scissors are for removing skin tags or "dead" tissue when doing the repair.
