Barraquer Needle Holder

Home > Ophthalmology Instruments > Barraquer Needle Holder

Barraquer'S Needle Holder is just like a holder used by doctors or surgeons for the purpose of holding a suturing needle. They are used in suturing and surgical procedures for closing wounds. This needle holder is designed with jaws, joint and handles. Some needle holders are available with a clamp mechanism. This mechanism helps in locking the needle in place enabling the user to move the needle through different tissues. The jaws of the needle are textured as well as short if compared to the handles. This increases the applied force that maintains a strong grip on the needle.
