Needle Holders for Surgical Suture
Needle holders, also known as needle drivers, are instruments that are mostly used to suture wounds during surgical procedures. Special jaws keep the needle from slipping, while a locking mechanism prevents the surgical instrument from opening during the process. In our online shop we offer various disposable and reusable surgical needle holders. They all allow precise control of needle movement and a secure hold of the suture needle so that little force is needed to drive the needle through tissues
Hegar medical needle holders mimic tissue grasping forceps. The shape of these instruments makes them ideal for deep sutures. The comparatively long and slim needle holders provide a good view of the operating field and excellent suture needle control.
The disposable Mayo-Hegar Needle Holder from Teqler is particularly popular. This surgical instrument with a straight shape is made of matt metal and is ideal for placing sutures in deep and narrow surgical wounds. As the instrument is disposable, cross-contamination is safely avoided and reprocessing costs are eliminated. It is available at a great price in our online shop.
If you are looking for an attractively priced reusable surgical needle holder, we stock the Mayo-Hegar Needle Holder. It is made of stainless steel and available in different lengths. We also offer the Olsen-Hegar Needle Holder. This surgical instrument has an integrated cutting edge for cutting suture, which make it easier to sew without assistance. As well as a cutting edge, it also has structured jaws to ensure a firm grip on the needle.
Mathieu and Castroviejo Needle Holders
The Mathieu Medical Needle Holder is particularly well suited for surgical suture, e.g. when the practitioner needs to change needles frequently or change their grip. The instruments have a lock and grooved jaws which provide a secure hold of the needle during suture.
For microsurgery, such as eye surgery, we recommend the filigree Castroviejo Micro-Needle Holder. This needle holder is available in straight and curved versions and is easy to use thanks to the ribbed grip.
