Scissors, Surgical, Laparoscopic, Hooking Jaw
Definition : Laparoscopic surgical scissors designed to cut tissue using a hook-like nonslipping jaw during laparoscopic procedures. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel), very thin blades with tips conformed as a hook to encircle the tissue. The blades slide past each other (i.e., shearing action) to cut the tissue. The blades are the integral part of a shank that is attached to a handle at the proximal end conformed as rings to facilitate holding and operating or are separate components that are used with a handle that is common to several laparoscopic instruments. Hooking jaw laparoscopic scissors are used mainly to cut secured ducts (e.g., cystic duct during cholangiography), arteries, and nerve bundles in neurectomy with no chance of slippage.
