Home > Surgical Instruments > Surigcal Needle

The needle is probably the simplest and the most basic medical implement. The science of surgery requires the use of several different kinds of needles. These needles must be be strong enough to pass through stringent tissue while causing lowest trauma to delicate tissues and reducing tissue reactions.

Generally, Surgical Needles are made of steel, available in different sizes, have blunt or sharp points, and are curved or straight. The straight needle is probably the most popular type, mainly used for skin closure in some surgeries. Straight needles are best to be used for suturing without the use of a needle holder, as long as the suturing area provides good visibility.
