Buy surgical surgical instruments for sutures such as needle holders, micro needle holders and wire cutters in surgical quality directly from the online shop
Sutures - Needle holders, needles and wire cutters
Our special suture instruments: needle holders, needles and wire cutters are offered in two different varieties. The average version is made entirely of medical steel and offers the surgeon great grip function and perfect guidance of the needle; however the metal is softer and less durable than tungsten carbide. The tungsten carbide needle holder metal is much stronger and much more durable, offering excellent fixation of the clamped needle. You will also find a selection of wire cutters for different wire sizes. Again, only the best carbide is used. The category of suture instruments also includes guidance probes, thread catchers, Reverdin needles, Ligature needles and various surgical clip forceps.
Customer information on surgical wound care and the use of needle holders
In medicine, sewing refers to the form of tissue union using a needle and thread, whereby the ends are knotted. It is a basic and still indispensable surgical or operative technique, since a wound heals quickly without complications if the wound layers that lie together lie against each other without tension. This is made possible by a wide variety of suturing techniques and is intended to bridge the period of time until a resilient biological scar has resulted from wound healing. Sewing is a historically very old form of treatment. The most important advances have been and are being made with the materials, i.e. the needles and the threads. Different tasks require different sutures. In the past, natural silk and sheep gut (catgut) were used as sutures. Today, state-of-the-art plastics are used almost exclusively. Absorbable and non-absorbable threads First, a distinction is made between absorbable and non-absorbable threads. As described above, the suture only has a temporary task and suture material that remains unnecessarily in the body poses an inflammation risk. Therefore, accessible, non-absorbable sutures are removed after a sufficient time. This is called "pulling threads". For areas in which the threads for pulling cannot be reached, for example sutures on internal organs or in the subcutaneous fatty tissue, threads are used that are broken down (resorbed) by the body itself. Surgical sutures are classified according to their resorption time, the time in which they have lost half their strength, while the dissolution time is the time that elapses before they are completely dissolved. Absorption is not only a material-specific property, but also a function of time (hyperbole). The modern threads are hydrolytically split by the presence of body water. The size of the surface (and therefore the diameter) of the thread therefore play an equally important role as the type of sewn fabric, the moisture content of which varies.
