Main function:ﾠTo hold and guide suture needles securely for suturing.ﾠ
Where used mostly:ﾠAll surgery.ﾠ
Important product features:ﾠThe jaws are milled for nonslip grip on needle. The jaws of regular stainless steel needle holders cannot be replaced; in many situations the TC needle holder is therefore the more economical choice.ﾠ
Useful hints in usage:ﾠThey look similar to hemostats, but jaws are thicker and shorter. They are available in many styles and sizes. Shorter ones are used for working close to the surface. Longer ones are for deeper cavities. The smaller the needle, the smaller the jaws of the needle holder. If the needle is too large to be held securely, select a larger size needle holder. Otherwise, the needle may slip, or the needle holder may be overstressed, causing fatigue or breakage.
