- This is the Mayo Hegar needle holder. It has much shorter jaws than your longer-jawed “hemostat”. The shorter jaws help clamp the suture-needle tighter. It can also act as a hemostat or probe and has even been used to clamp the surgical blades when doing minor surgery. The needle holder is one of the most versatile of your instruments. The Mayo Hegar is the most common type of needle holder and the one most often carried and used in the field.
This product is made in Pakistan and it is stainless steel so it is reusable after being sterilized.
