TC Baumgartner Needle Holders feature heavy serrations which make this instrument capable of firmly holding larger needles and dense suture material. They are commonly used in procedures on the trunk and limbs. Tungsten Carbide instruments are designed to stay sharp for a significantly longer period of time than other standard instruments. SMS permanently bonds tungsten carbide inserts to the instrument, which maximizes control and precision. TC instruments are identified by gold handles. This product is straight with cross-serrated tips and a length of 145 mm.
