Scissors, Surgical, Gall Bladder
Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut and/or dissect the gall bladder. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) straight blades with sharp tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action) and a long shank. 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. Gall bladder scissors are used in surgical procedures for opening or complete dissection of the gall bladder.
