Scissors, Surgical, Tendon

Definition : Surgical scissors designed to cut a tendon (i.e., tenotomy). These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) blades with blunt tips that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). The blades are usually attached to large, strong handles with the proximal end conformed as a ring to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers; both parts are joined together by a swivel pin in the center. Tendon surgery scissors are mainly used to cut tendons in neurosurgical procedures; they are also used to cut tendons that attach the ophthalmic orbital muscles in procedures intended to correct strabismus.
