Scissors, Surgical, Uterine, Parametrium/Hysterectomy

Definition : Uterine surgery scissors designed to cut the parametria. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) angled or curved blades with blunt tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action); one tip may include a ball. The blades are attached to handles with the proximal end conformed as a ring to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers; both parts are joined by a swivel pin in the center. Parametrium uterine surgery scissors are used to sever the parametrium tissue bundles with little trauma to surrounding tissue in radical vaginal hysterectomy procedures.
