Scissors, Surgical, Uterine
Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut and dissect tissues in the uterus and surrounding tissues. These scissors are typically handheld manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) wide, straight, or curved blades with rounded blunt 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; both parts are joined by a swivel pin in the center. Uterine surgery scissors are used in procedures involving the uterus and surrounding tissues; dedicated scissors for cutting the parametrium in radical vaginal hysterectomy are also available.
