Scissors, Surgical, Heart, Valve

Definition : Heart (cardiac) surgical scissors designed to cut cardiac valve tissue (i.e., during valve replacement or repair procedures). These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two slender and flat metallic (e.g., stainless steel) straight or curved sharp blades that slide past each other (i.e., shearing action). Typically, the blades are attached to long shanks finished in handles, with the proximal ends conformed as a ring to facilitate holding and operating with the fingers; both parts are joined by a swivel pin close to the blades. Dedicated scissors designed for a particular heart valve (e.g., mitral) are also available.
