steriSTAT® Sterile Disposable Mayo Hegar Needle Holder with Grooves

Our Mayo-Hegar Needle Holder with Grooves, crafted from surgical-grade stainless steel, is an important instrument for surgeons and other clinicians performing sutured wound closures. Named after Drs. William Mayo and Emil Hegar, this instrument features an unwavering grip, smooth operation, and ergonomic design.

  • Strength and Stability for Heavy Needles: Surgical-grade stainless steel construction ensures our Mayo-Hegar Needle Holder withstands the demands of surgery. It confidently grasps heavy or large suture needles for thick tissues or deep wounds.
  • Precise Control with a Smooth Touch: The ratchet mechanism with multiple locking positions allows for effortless application and controlled release of pressure on the needle. This fine-tuned control minimizes needle slippage and promotes a consistent suturing rhythm.
  • Enhanced Grip with Grooved Jaws: Cross-serrated and grooved jaws firmly hold even the most challenging needles, preventing them from rotating or twisting within the grasp. These grooves provide additional contact area and stability, especially for manipulating thicker or stiffer suture materials. This secure hold is essential for accurate suture placement and knot tying in any suturing scenario.
  • Ergonomic Design for Comfort and Control: The Mayo-Hegar Needle Holder conforms comfortably to your hand, minimizing fatigue during extended procedures. This focus on ergonomics ensures a smooth operating experience, free from friction or binding.
  • Consistent Quality and Performance: Each undergoes a meticulous forging, milling, tempering, and polishing process, delivering a reliable and precise suturing experience, every time.
  • Pre-Sterilized Convenience: These single-use Needle Holders are sterilized with gamma irradiation, eliminating the need for separate sterilization procedures and saving valuable time and resources.
The Mayo-Hegar Needle Holder's versatility makes it a useful tool across various surgical specialties, including:

  • General Surgery: Its secure grip and controlled manipulation are ideal for suturing wounds of varying depths and tissue types, from suturing skin lacerations to approximating deep internal structures.
  • Neurosurgery: The atraumatic grip allows for controlled suturing of delicate neural tissues.
  • Plastic Surgery: Ensures precise suturing for delicate cosmetic procedures and skin grafts.
  • Dental Surgery: In certain situation, the Mayo-Hegar Needle Holder can be used in dental surgical procedures requiring a stronger grip for suturing thicker tissues.
