Suture Needles

Using exclusive stainless steel materials, we make atraumatic suture needles of the highest quality.

Futura Surgicare Pvt. Ltd. manufactures surgical suture needles from 300 series and 420 series for general surgery. Dolphin Sutures is one of the main consumer of the suture needles manufactured by FSPL. Being a suture manufacturer and supplier gives us sufficient experience and knowledge to identify the right quality of suture needles which will be appreciated by the users.

All needles manufactured by FSPL offer excellent strength and high penetration characteristics. We currently manufacture needles from sizes between 16mm to 90mm in length in 420 series and sizes between 30mm to 50mm in length in 300 series range. The needles are engineered for the superior hardness with flexibility to eliminate brittleness, all needles are electro-polished to enhance finish/texture and reduce tissue drag. Also, all needles are siliconized for excellent smoothness and bore is annealed for superior suture-needle attachment strength.

  • Usage

    The surgical needle allows the placement of the suture within the tissue, carrying the material through with minimal residual trauma.

    The ideal surgical needle should be rigid enough to resist distortion, yet flexible enough to bend before breaking, be as slim as possible to minimize trauma, sharp enough to penetrate tissue with minimal resistance, and be stable within a needle holder to permit accurate placement.

    Commonly, surgical needles are made from stainless steel. They are composed of:

    • The swaged end connects the needle to the suture
    • The needle body or shaft is the region grasped by the needle holder. Needle bodies can be round, cutting, or reverse cutting:
      • Round bodied needles are used in friable tissue such as liver and kidney
      • Cutting needles are triangular in shape, and have 3 cutting edges to penetrate tough tissue such as the skin and sternum, and have a cutting surface on the concave edge
      • Reverse cutting needles have a cutting surface on the convex edge, and are ideal for tough tissue such as tendon or subcuticular sutures, and have reduced risk of cutting through tissue
    • The needle point acts to pierce the tissue, beginning at the maximal point of the body and running to the end of the needle, and can be either sharp or blunt:
      • Blunt needles are used for abdominal wall closure, and in friable tissue, and can potentially reduce the risk of blood borne virus infection from needle stick injuries.
      • Sharp needles pierce and spread tissues with minimal cutting, and are used in areas where leakage must be prevented.

    The needle shape vary in their curvature and are described as the proportion of a circle completed – the ¼, ⅜, ½, and ⅝ are the most common curvatures used. Different curvatures are required depending on the access to the area to suture.
