The Danger of Unfinished Lateral Edges

  • The hard corners of unfinished square (90°) corners are ALWAYS REMOVED AT MASTEL. They are actually cutting edges on their own (albeit very dull ones), and they create wound margin defects if not removed. With a simple spear or lance, the sides of the blades are left rectangular, which means you have these ‘hard corners’ or edges above and below the plane of the dissection that has been advanced into the eye. We have not provided these designs to anyone for over a decade because they are wrong. Most wound leaks from the diamond paracentesis profile IS designs are due primarily to this lack of faceting acumen and should not be offered.
