For the past 25 years Laschal has been involved in the research and development of new and innovative surgical instruments and technologies that circumvent common clinical problems the medical community has had for many years, but had previously accepted as unsolvable and without solution.
The Laschal PST – Guarantees the desired length above a knot that a surgical suture is trimmed.
The Laschal NDS- A combination needleholder/ scissors with the same features and benefits of the PST above without the complications and detriments of the Olsen Hegar or Gillies type needleholders.
The Laschal LSS – A combination scissors/ forceps for the simple one handed removal of surgical sutures, leaving one hand free for stabilization.
The Laschal Modu-Flex line of surgical instruments incorporates the use of flexibly resilient stainless steel in the manufacture of common scissors, forceps and needleholders. This revolutionary technology ensures that:
Scissors having a never before possible increased shearing angle that ensures greater cutting and performance, and which guarantee the elimination of loosening that is common with all other scissors technologies.
A universal needleholder that will hold on to any size needle and which has enough clearance of the locking components so as to prevent the accidental engagement of the locking during an instrument tie.
A Pressure Limiting Atraumatic Forceps (PLAF) that securely grasps tissue and needles, and which minimizes instrument induced vascular damage during manipulation.
