Needle Holder for Surgical Wound Suture
Needle holders are surgical instruments that are mostly used during surgical operations for suturing wounds. Special walls keep the needle from slipping, while a locking mechanism prevents the instrument from opening during the suturing procedure. Surgical needle holders allow for precise needle control, as well as suturing of deeper lying layers and structures. Simultaneously, the risks of needle stick injuries and germ transmission are minimized.
Wound suture needle holders are typcially composed of stainless steel; depending on model and requirement, they are also available in various shapes and sizes. In addition to the reusable instruments, needle holders are also available as economical disposable instruments, which are simply disposed of after use.
Mathieu, Mayo-Hegar and Olsen-Hegar Needle Holders
Hegar needle holders mimic grasping forceps and are counted amongs the oldest of needle holders. Their form makes them well-suited for deep suturing. The comparatively long and slim needle holders provide a good view of the operating field, as well as good needle control.
Mathieu needle holders are particularly suited for surgical suture with which the doctor needs to wrap often. Mathieu needle holders have a lock and a grooved clasp opening and, therefore, offer a secure hold of the needle while suturing.
