Tenotomy scissors are mainly used in delicate surgical procedures. They are especially used in hand surgery. The small and sharp blades allows for precision cutting the sensitive and delicate tissues in the hand like in Carpal tunnal decompression.
Tenotomy scissors are made to be extra sharp for cutting small structures.like the nasal cavities. The small scissors are easily able to fit into the small nasal openings, and can reach far back into the cavities, depending on where the dissection or cut is to be made. They can also be used to cut through tendons. The narrow blades are easily inserted into the muscle groups. The blades can make a precise cut into the deeper muscle areas, small enough to suit the requirements of the surgery.
