TC Halsey Needle Holders are ratcheted, finger ring instruments used for holding small needles for suturing, most commonly during plastic surgery and procedures with delicate tissue, such as dermatology. They are available with smooth or delicately serrated jaws. Smooth jaws will cause the least damage to the needle; however, serrated jaws hold the needle more tightly. Physician preference typically determines the type of working surface utilized. 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 a length of 13 cm and 15 cm.
