Surgical Needle Patent
 

System with a surgical needle and a handle

In a system with a surgical needle (10) and a handle (20), the surgical needle (10), in its proximal end region opposite the needle tip, includes a support section which is adapted to be pushed in the handle (20). The handle (20) includes a lumen adapted to support the support section of the surgical needle (10) and a locking device (30 26), which can be adjusted from a locking position, in which the support section is secured to the handle (20), to a release position, in which the support section can be pulled out of the lumen.

Surgical needle for implanting a tape

A surgical needle (1) for implanting a tape (2) has a needle tip (12) at the distal end (10) of the needle (1) and a shaft (14). An insertion wing (20) with a distal (24) and a proximal (26) end extends from the shaft (14). The insertion wing (20) widens from its distal end (24) in proximal direction and has in the area of its proximal end (26) an attachment device (32) for the tape (2) to be implanted.

Surgical needle holder

The surgical needle holder has a support body formed of an electrically conducting material and constituted by an outer cylindrical tube and an inner core. The outer cylindrical tube and the exposed parts of the core are surrounded by an insulating jacket. At one end of the core extends a blind bore or passageway into which the shank of the surgical needle is inserted. The blind bore or passageway crosses a cylindrical cavity formed in the core. The cavity has a vertical face and an opposing inclined face. The cavity is accessible through a slot formed in the surface of the outer cylindrical tube. A releasable locking device is formed by an electrically conducting plate having an insulated tab portion. The plate is mounted for pivotal movement from an upright position to a maximum forward inclined position and occupies the cavity with the insulated tab portion extending outwardly through the slot to the exterior of the support body. The plate also has a central aperture which, when in its upright pivotal position, is in alignment with the blind bore which has the same diameter. A coiled spring is housed in a groove formed in the inner core and surrounded by the outer cylindrical tube. The spring engages and urges the conducting plate to its maximum forward portion.

Surgical needle immobilization device

A multiple capacity surgical needle immobilization safety device is provided for use in disposal of needles during medical treatment. The device can be included in a procedure kit or trays where several needles and cannulas, up to five per tray, are provided as a set to be used sequentially in performing a specific procedure such as spinal block or other anesthesia.
