Scissors, Surgical, Uterine, Fetal Decapitation

Definition : Surgical scissors designed for fetal decapitation. These scissors are typically handheld, manual instruments with two metallic (e.g., stainless steel) sturdy, curved, wide blades with blunt tips to prevent damage to the surrounding maternal tissues, attached shanks, and rounded blunt tips that are slid 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. Fetal decapitation scissors are used during obstetric procedures when the fetus is not viable or to protect the mother during difficult labor.
