Mayo-Stille scissors are a type of surgical scissors commonly used in a variety of surgical procedures. They are named after the Swedish surgeon Axel Theodor Stille and the American surgeon Charles Horace Mayo, who independently developed the scissors in the early 20th century.

Mayo-Stille scissors are designed with heavy, straight blades that are short and robust. The blades are typically blunt, but may be slightly sharp at the tip. The scissors are usually made of high-quality stainless steel and come in a variety of sizes and lengths, depending on the specific surgical procedure being performed.

Mayo-Stille scissors are commonly used in surgical procedures such as general surgery, urology, and orthopedic surgery. They are particularly useful for cutting tough tissue such as muscle, fascia, or tendons, and for dissecting tissue planes during surgery.

Proper training and experience are necessary to use Mayo-Stille scissors safely and effectively. Healthcare professionals must be familiar with the specific instrument being used, as well as the potential risks and complications associated with its use. Additionally, care must be taken to ensure that the scissors are properly cleaned and sterilized before each use to prevent the spread of infection.
