Scissors, Wound Debridement
Definition : Scissors designed to cut and excise foreign material and/or damaged or contaminated tissue from or around a wound. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) sharp or serrated blades with fine tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are attached to long, straight, or curved shanks finished in handles at 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.
