Scissors, Surgical, Abdominal Wall
Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut the abdominal wall. These scissors are typically sturdy, handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel blades), with straight or curved (sharp, blunt, or combined) tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are attached to 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. Abdominal wall surgical scissors are used in open surgery procedures involving the abdominal organs.
