Scissors, Surgical, Nerve
Definition : Surgical scissors designed for fine and sharp dissection of nerves. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) straight or curved blades, a long shank, and inside sharp and outside semi-sharp tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are usually attached to long 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. Nerve cutting and dissection surgery scissors are mainly used in delicate neurosurgical procedures.
