Mathieu Needle Holder 17 cm TC Needle Holder (with lock, serrated, length of knurl 1,7 cm, gilded ending, total length 17 cm, tungsten carbide) The Mathieu Needle Holder has two branches with lock. The spreading of the spring serves for easy opening of the holder. A needle holder is used for clamping the needle when laying the suture. With help of the needle holder, the needle is fixed and thus can not slip. Due to the filigree form, the needle can be performed optimally and there is a low risk of injury during surgery for the patient and surgeon. Most needle holders are used for precise guidance of surgical needles. Other models are equipped with or without locks or allow various types of gripping. These surgical instruments are provided with a hard metal insert (TC Tungsten Carbide) and are recognizable by golden rings. The special feature is up to thirty times longer durability and stable handling.
