Swann-Morton add Dermatome blades to their Skin Graft Range

The Skin Graft range is used in the surgical removal of a patch of healthy skin from one area of the patients body which is then transplanted to another area where there has been extensive tissue loss.

Skin grafts may be recommended for Burns, specific surgeries that may require skin grafts for healing to occur and for areas of prior infection with extensive skin loss.

They may also be used for cosmetic reasons on reconstructive surgeries (See Dermatome). Still under development the range currently consists of the popular Stainless Steel sterile 158 mm Skin Graft Blade (9940) which fits our Braithwaite (9901), Cobbett (9902) and Watson (9903) Skin Graft Handles.

New to the range the Stainless Steel Sterile Dermatome blades are used primarily within Plastic, Reconstructive and Oral surgery procedures.

Available in three sizes, a 25mm single segment 9943) , a 50mm two segmental(9944) and a 75mm three segmental (9945) , the blades are individually wrapped in foil packets and boxed in units of 10 pieces.

The blades are compatible with leading brands of Dermatome knives.
