Scissors, Surgical, Spinal, Microsurgery
Definition : Spinal surgery scissors designed to cut spinal (e.g., spinal disc) tissues during microsurgical procedures. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two small metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with straight sharp tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are attached by a turnable (e.g., 360 degrees) long shank to handles, with the proximal end conformed as a ring (e.g., ribbon style) to facilitate holding and operating; with the fingers both parts are joined by a swivel pin in the center.
