Scissors, Surgical, Abdominal/Thoracic Cavity Tissue Dissection
Definition : Surgical scissors designed for dissection of soft tissue in deep surgery procedures performed in the abdominal and/or thoracic cavities. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) straight, angled, or curved blades with blunt tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are usually attached to large, strong 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. Abdominal/thoracic cavity tissue dissection surgery scissors are mainly used to cut soft tissue from anatomic structures and organs, including the loose connective tissue forming the outermost coating of an organ (i.e., adventitia).
