SWANN MORTON STITCH CUTTER

A cost-effective range of sterile stitch cutters that are perfect for use in A&E departments, hospital wards and general practices. The sterile carbon steel stitch cutter has a rounded bullnose tip that makes sure skin is not damaged when the surgical edge cuts through the suture.

How to use a stitch cutter blade?

Normally skin sutures are removed 5-8 days after treatment. Absorbable sutures do not require cutting as they lose strength and are absorbed by the body over time. However, non-absorbable will need to be cut out.  While stitch cutters are simple to use it is important that all healthcare staff are confident in using them.

Make sure the area cleaned carefully with the appropriate solution.

Hold the free end of the suture and then slide the stitch cutter under so it lies flat on the patient’s skin.

Now start rotating the stitch cutter upwards so that the surgical edge is in contact with the suture material. Make sure this is as close as possible to where the suture enters the skin.

Softly pull the suture out make sure that the section which has been exposed to the outside does not get drawn through the wound. This may lead to an increased risk of post-infection
