Home > Specialties > Guillotines


Definition : Instruments designed to cut objects, tissue, and/or organs using a movable sliding blade. These instruments typically include a mechanism (e.g., crank, shaft) that operates the blades by moving (e.g., dropping) them along guides to cut the objects (e.g., sets of papers, x-ray film). Dedicated guillotines are available for use as surgical instruments (e.g., tonsil excision, rib cutting).
