Scissors, Postmortem

Definition : Scissors designed to cut and dissect tissue during postmortem procedures (e.g., autopsy, dissection). These scissors are typically handheld, manual, heavy-duty instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with sharp edges and tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action) conformed according to the tissues to be dissected. 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. Scissors with sharp and blunt blade tips are available; dedicated postmortem scissors (e.g., with probe tips for the coronary arteries, ball ends for anatomic ducts) are also available.
