Blades, Manual Dermatome

Definition : Blades designed as the cutting component of manual surgical instruments intended for mechanical skin graft harvesting (i.e., manual, mechanical dermatomes). These blades typically consist of a flat piece of metal (e.g., stainless steel) with one sharp edge that can cut large skin grafts with uniform-thickness by moving a handheld frame with the blade attached to it or, more frequently, by operating a drum with an oscillating blade that cuts the skin grafts as the drum rolls over the skin. Manual dermatome blades are typically available as disposable (single-use) devices, but some are intended for reuse after sterilization Dedicated blades are available according to the particular characteristics of the dermatomes; they are mainly used to obtain skin grafts from donor sites but they may be also used in other procedures (e.g., to remove tattoos).
