gSource’s gSilicone Rod Shears were awarded the third place Excellence in Surgical Products Award in the Surgical Instruments category. Surgical Products connected with gSource to learn more.
They shared: The gSilicone Rod Shears from gSource benefits the surgical team and aids in better outcomes for patients in three key areas:
1. Surgical performance: Double action design provides surgeons greater ease in cutting rods.
2. Efficiency: One instrument shears three different rod diameters – 4.5mm, 5.5mm and 6.35mm. Available with (gS 83.7290) or without (gS 83.7280) detachable handles. Due to 22-inch overall length, detachable handles allow for easier storage and flexibility when fitting in sterilization containers.
3. Safety: Rods are sheared, leaving a smooth and clean surface rather than a sharp, jagged, burr-like surface common when using a standard pinching-type rod cutter. This results in less trauma for the patient. Biocompatible silicone handles help to prevent slippage and provide a secure, comfortable grip for the surgeon. Rod shears are a high quality precision instrument made from German stainless steel. Better instruments result in better outcomes for the patient.
