Scissors, Surgical, Intestine, Rectum, Fistula

Definition : Rectum surgery scissors designed to dissect tissue (e.g., adhesions, fibrotic tissue) from fistulas between the rectum and vagina (i.e., rectovaginal) or between the rectum and urinary bladder (rectovesical). These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel), very fine, either straight or curved blades with sharp tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action) and a long shank. The blades are attached to handles with the proximal end conformed as a ring to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers; the two parts are joined by a swivel pin in the center. Fistula rectum scissors are used in surgical procedures of the rectum intended to suppress abnormal rectal fistulas.
