Scissors, Surgical, Middle Ear, Ossicular Wire Prosthesis

Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut small caliber wires used in prosthesis of middle ear ossicular structures. These scissors are typically light 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). 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. Ossicular cutting scissors are used in middle-ear surgery to cut wire used in ossicle reconstruction; the wire is placed as a long prosthesis linking the malleus to the oval window to keep the ossicular chain continuity in stapedectomy procedures.
