Surgical instruments for practice use

Surgical instruments can vary widely depending on the area of surgery in which they are used. In general, instruments can be divided into five classes according to their function:

Cutting and preparing instruments:
Scalpels, scissors, and saws are the most traditional.
Although the term dissection is broad energy devices like diathermy / caustic, they are often used as more modern alternatives.
Grasping or holding instruments:
Classically, this mainly comprised tweezers and clamps.
Coarse forceps can be divided into traumatic (tissue squeezing) and atraumatic (tissue preservation, such as Debakey's).
Hemostatic Instruments:
This includes instruments that are used to stop bleeding.
A classic example of this are arterial clamps, which stop bleeding by directly clamping a vessel.
Sutures are also often used, assisted by a needle holder.
Cautery and related instruments are increasingly used in resource-rich countries.

The optimal selection for your surgical instruments

Retractors:
Surgery is often assumed to be primarily exposure.
There are a variety of retractors available to help expose the body cavities accessible during surgery.
These can be largely hand-held (often by a junior assistant) or self-holding.
Tissue unifying instruments and materials:
This includes instruments that support tissue standardization (e.g. needle holders or clip applicators).
And the materials themselves (seams, staples, glue, etc.)
