I had a chance to use the new instruments. The performance is remarkable. Thus far I have used them for blepharoplasties and I am eager to use them for other procedures as well. The tissue forceps outperform the others I have used. The added slip resistance coupled with the total protection against iatrogenic damage to tissue is significant. My assistant likes the suture cutter. It enables her to perfectly trim sutures automatically, even when the line of sight is impaired.
