Knives, Postmortem, Grossing

Definition : Postmortem knives designed for gross cutting and preliminary dissection of tissues during autopsy. These knives typically consist of sturdy handheld, manual instruments with a handle at the proximal end and an integral sharp cutting blade at the distal end; the blades are available in a variety of sizes and shapes. Some blades include a heavy edge on the opposite side of the cutting edge to permit hitting with a mallet when necessary. Grossing postmortem knives are used mainly in the first steps of autopsy and cadaver dissection.
