I am a cst trainee and just wanted a random rant. I am surprised by the fact that in this modern day and age (with new upcoming innovative technology used in healthcare) we are still stuck on rusty old stuff surgical instruments used for open surgery. They are very limiting and I thought they may improve to make our lives easier.
Does anyone have any thoughts/opinions on the matter or am I nitpicking?
Can these instruments be improved or will we have to tolerate with the prehistoric old tools when performing open surgery?
