Suture needles that are used for closing any open wounds or surgical cuts are called cutting needles.
The needles are designed that way to penetrate wounds, that may be located in areas which are fleshy. One end of the suture needle has an eye which is supposed to smooth so as not to fray the suture thread that is to be passed through it.
Suture needles are made of surgical steel and are corrosion resistant.
- Straight Triangular- These are the ones that are long and tapered at the end and are used to close soft tissue like gastrointestinal, fascia, vascular, and other soft tissue found below the skin’s surface.
- All Sizes Available (1 to 20): These needles are available in multiple sizes, to ensure that all types of surgical needs are met.
