Micro Castroviejo needle holder


Castroviejo needle holders are mainly used in microsurgery. They are distinguished from other needle holders by the fineness of their tip and the mechanism of their handle which allows the jaws to be activated without effort. Thanks to their springs, Castroviejo microsurgical needle holders offer flexibility and precision during surgery.

They help to reduce repetitive movements during long surgeries, thus relieving the practitioner. Their unique design features allow them to suture wounds and incisions very precisely and smoothly with minimal trauma, reducing the risk of damaging peripheral tissue. These microsurgical needle holders are used to hold very small needles for sutures with a caliber of 5-0 to 8-0.

The Castroviejo HYGITECH microsurgical needle holders have the following features :

• A spring-loaded lock with a "ratchet" system : without grip rings, this instrument works via a spring that curves inwards to lock/unlock the needle holder. Unlike other needle holders, the surgeon does not need to gauge the tightness of the needle, a single pressure on the arms with the palm of the hand engages the mechanism.

• Grip: spring-loaded handle for great flexibility

• Round handle : provides optimum comfort by perfectly fitting the shape of the hand and the practitioner's movements

• Needle holder size: 15 cm

The Tungsten Carbide is a alloy between carbon and tungsten. Tungsten Carbide (TC) is the material with a high melting point of  (3422°). Therefore, TC is a material very high hardness with high resistance to wear and oxidation

Diamond-coated inner surface: the short jaws make it easy to grip the needle and hold it firmly in place, preventing it from slipping when suturing a wound. Similarly, the micro-serrations minimise the risk of cutting the suture during knotting. Instruments with diamond tips are even stronger than those with only tungsten carbide. They are recognisable by their unique gold handle

Convex-concave tip : which adapts perfectly to the curvature of the needle and guarantees a firm and secure grip on the needle for high precision procedures

For thin and delicate needles, with small to very small suture sizes a caliber of 5-0 to 8-0

Two shapes available:

A straight tip for open areas with sufficient space

A curved tip: for open areas with limited space
