Scissors, Surgical, Cartilage

Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut fibrous connective tissue (i.e., cartilage). These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) straight or curved sturdy blades, frequently cutting on both sides, with sharp pointed tips and long shanks that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are usually 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. Cartilage surgery scissors are used mainly for dissection of tissues during orthopedic and plastic surgery procedures.
