Information @ a Glance


  • A scalpel is a small but extremely sharp knife used for surgery, anatomical dissection, and various arts and crafts.
  • Scalpels may be disposable or re-usable.
  • Scalpel blades are usually of hardened and tempered steel.
  • Surgical scalpels consist of two parts, a blade and a handle.
  • A laser scalpel is a scalpel for surgery, cutting or ablating living biological tissue by the energy of laser light.
    The Futura Safety Scalpel is the only safety scalpel currently on the market that employs automated retraction.


  • Flat scalpel handles are readily available and frequently used for all types of incisions, whether rounded, straight, or a combination of both.
  • Diamond scalpel blades have been used in a wide range of applications, from ophthalmology (cataracts, refractive surgery, glaucoma), plastic/cosmetic surgery (face lifts, eye lid), neurosurgery to the microdissection of tissue samples.
  • Scalpels have a thousand uses in the hospital including the placement of specialized catheters, removing growths, and in trimming tissue when aligning and customizing wound closures.
    Scalpel is used for determining the calorific value of a fuel oil.


  • The no-scalpel vasectomy is a refined technique developed by a Chinese surgeon. Instead of using a scalpel to make one or two small cuts in the scrotum, as in the conventional vasectomy, the physician uses a special sharp instrument to make a tiny puncture in the scrotum.
  • The effects of excursion, frequency, and application force on the cutting rate of an ultrasonic surgical instrument such as the Harmonic Scalpel can be examined using therapeutic ultrasound technology.
  • The surgical treatment of agespecific facial and brow wrinkles and folds by the subcutaneous dissection technique can be improved using a new surgical device, the so-called wire scalpel.


  • New diode-pumped solid-state lasers doped with thulium can be wavelength-tuned around the local water absorption peak at 1.94Ám, making them attractive as versatile laser scalpels.
  • A fine layer of a ceramic material based on titanium oxide that groups together bactericidal and anti-microbe properties on the surface of medical and dental instruments such as scalpels, pincers and drills for creating a nanostructured material that is self-sterilizing.
  • Two broad approaches developed by manufacturers to improve scalpel safety 1. Safety Scalpels. 2. Combination of single handed scalpel blade remover with a passing tray.

Report and Market

  • Sharpless surgical techniques include laparoscopy, electrocautery can replace scalpel incisions, and skin clips or glue instead of sewing to close or repair wounds.
  • Surgical blades and scalpels make up a $50 million annual market, with sales increases and decreases varying among the individual niche market.
  • A Supplier is likely to target the emergency room market with the new product, where sales of disposable scalpels are growing because of the increasing number of patients infected with HIV.
  • In the specialty blade and scalpel market, ophthalmic scalpels account for the largest increase in sales. Other specialty blade markets, such as those used for podiatry and ear, nose and throat surgery, are stable.
