Middle-ear microscissors.

Microline, Inc.'s, in-line microscissors offer several features for surgeons who perform middle-ear surgery. Its design simplifies access to the middle ear, and the microscissors bring "tactile" touch back to the surgeon's fingertips. Plus, the ergonomic, in-line design is more comfortable and provides superior control, eliminating "galloping" when the blades are actuated. The blades rotate 360[degrees], providing maneuverability and making use of the microscissors less fatiguing. The microscissors have a cost-effective disposable tip on a reusable handpiece, so they never have to be sent out to be sharpened.
