Scissors, Surgical, Larynx
Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut and/or dissect tissue from the larynx and associated structures. 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 and are joined by a swivel pin in the center.
