Scissors, Surgical, Nasal, Septum
Definition : Nasal surgery scissors designed to cut (resect) nasal septum tissue. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two long metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with straight or angled sharp tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). 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. Sturdier scissors with reverse action, serrated blades, and flat curved handles with inserted springs to provide a safer grip and a more uniform and/or sensitive manipulation, avoiding uneven tension, are also available. Nasal septum surgery scissors are used to perform plastic and/or reconstructive procedures of the nose (i.e. rhinoplasty).
