Scissors, Surgical, Bronchus, Endoscopic
Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut tissue in the bronchi through the working channel of a bronchoscope These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel), very thin blades with sharp tips and a long flexible shank; usually, a movable blade slides toward a stationary blade (i.e., shearing action). The blades are attached through the shank to handles at the proximal end conformed as rings to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers. Bronchoscopic scissors are used to cut and excise tissue from the bronchi, typically to widen the lumen or to excise small tumors.
