TC Crile-Wood Needle Holder is used to hold and guide small to medium size needles and suture materials. The Crile-Wood Needle Holder has a gently tapered, blunt tip and is generally more delicate than the Mayo-Hegar but slightly less delicate than Webster, Halsey, or De Bakey needle holders. The ratcheted finger ring handle aids in securing needles for both continuous and interrupted closures. SMS permanently bonds tungsten carbide inserts to the instrument, which maximizes control and precision. TC instruments are designed to stay sharp for a significantly longer period of time than other standard instruments. TC instruments are identified by gold handles. This product is straight with cross-serrated tips, and an overall length of 15 cm.
