Knives, Surgical, Nerve
Definition : Surgical knives designed for cutting and/or dissecting nerves. These knives consist of manual, needle-like handheld instruments, usually with a straight tubular handle and a shaft with a flat cutting blade at its distal tip. Nerve knives are mainly used in neurosurgical procedures; dedicated knives intended for dissection of particular nerves (e.g., trigeminus) are available.
