Abstract

A new electric cutter for surgical prostheses has been developed and was compared with surgical scissors for efficacy. This comparison of the two methods was done by cutting the edges of nine popular prostheses. It was concluded from gross and microscopical results after pulling both edges of the grafts cut by the two methods that the electric cutter is much more effective for surgical prostheses.
