Scissors, Surgical, Biliary Duct
Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut biliary duct tissue. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) sharp blades that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are attached to long shanks, usually conformed at a 60-degree angle; they also include 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. Biliary duct scissors are used in open surgery procedures involving the opening, dissection, and/or removing of the biliary ducts.
