Scissors, Surgical, Brain
Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut and/or dissect brain tissue. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) angled or curved blades with sharp or blunt (e.g., pointed) tips and very long shanks that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are usually 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. Brain surgery scissors are used mainly for dissection of brain tissue during neurosurgical procedures.
