Olsen Hegar Needle Holder

Instrument type/name: Olsen Hegar Needle Holders.ᅠ

aka: Needle Drivers, Drivers.

Raw material:
ᅠForgings from stainless steel. They are available with and without TC inserts.ᅠ

Technical specifications: Made from Martensitic Stainless Steel Grade AISI 420 A or SUS 420 (J1).

ᅠSilk matte satin finish / polish finish.ᅠGold-plated handles identify the Tungsten Carbide tips.ᅠ

Main function:ᅠTo hold and guide suture needles securely for suturing. This is a combination scissors and needle holder, which speeds up the suturing process.ᅠ

Where used mostly:ᅠVeterinary, podiatric and dental surgery, where assistants are often not available.ᅠ

Important product features:ᅠTungsten carbide inserts in jaws are harder than needle steel. Precision-milled inserts provide a nonslip grip. They have exceptional durability. The jaws of a TC needle holder can be replaced when worn. 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:ᅠShorter 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.ᅠ

Special care instructions:ᅠDelicate needle holders are easily overstressed if used with a needle which is too long - choose the appropriate size.ᅠ

Other comments:ᅠThe most popular model is the 5.5 inch.ᅠ
