Product Information

FOR CUTTING CONSISTENTLY THIN CARTILAGE SLICES AS FINE AS 0.1 MM

 The KURZ Precise Cartilage Knife facilitates the cutting of consistently thin cartilage slices, as required for occluding tympanic membrane defects, covering tympanoplasty prostheses, or for reconstruction of the posterior auditory canal wall. It is equally suitable for cutting tragal and conchal cartilage conserving specimen material.

 

The cutting block, blade holder, and blade of the KURZ Precise Cartilage Knife make up a functional unit with which 0.7 mm cartilage slices can be made easily, quickly and in a standardized fashion. Distance plates (0.1/0.2/0.3 mm) make it possible to produce cartilage slices in thicknesses ranging from 0.1 mm to 0.7 mm. The blades are particularly sturdy and contain one oval and one circular template imprinted on each blade face. The latter indicates the minimum size of graft for covering a KURZ tympanoplasty prosthesis.

Benefits

  • Facilitates the cutting of consistently thin cartilage slices – easily, quickly and in a standardized fashion
  • Equally suitable for cutting tragal and conchal cartilage conserving specimen material
