This subsection has text and images from an interactive multimedia training program on basic surgical skills called 
PrimeSkills in Surgery.
You can use this subsection on its own or follow the whole program (further details at the end of this subsection).

Stitch scissors are the basic surgical instrument in this program.

They have several features which need to be known from the outset, since they are utilised in subtle ways by the expert surgeon.

These may not be obvious to the beginner.

There is an enormous range of sizes and shapes of scissors in surgery.
