Scissors, Surgical, Wire Cutting

Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut small-caliber suturing wires. These scissors are typically sturdy handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) and frequently serrated blades with straight, angled, or curved sharp tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action); a blade may include a notch to facilitate rapid pickup and cutting. 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. Wire-cutting scissors are used to cut wire sutures in plastic and/or orthopedic surgery; many wire cutting scissors are also used to cut metallic mesh used in surgical procedures (e.g., hernia). Smaller dedicated wire cutting scissors are available to cut wire ossicle prosthesis.
