Scissors, Surgical, Laparoscopic

Definition : Surgical scissors designed to be used via a laparoscope to cut tissues encountered during laparoscopic procedures. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel), very thin, and frequently serrated blades with sharp tips that are slid past each other (i.e., shearing action). A long, flexible, and frequently rotating (e.g., 360 degrees) shank is attached to the blades and to handles at the proximal end conformed as rings to facilitate holding and operating by squeezing with the fingers. Laparoscopic scissors are used to cut and excise tissues from the abdomen during a variety of surgical (e.g., gynecologic, urinary tract, biliary tract) procedures; some are provided with a cord and appropriate insulation to perform monopolar electrosurgery.
