Intraocular suturing


Posted: Tuesday, July 16, 2013

The Geuder 25-gauge instrument set for intraocular suturing has been developed by Prof Dr Lars-Olof Hattenbach of Ludwigshafen and Geuder. “The new instrument set consists of a 25-gauge micro needle holder and a 25-gauge tying forceps,” said a company spokeswoman. “The hybrid instrument series for the first time facilitates stitching within the anterior chamber via a paracentesis and it is not necessary any longer to have to insert and remove long needles in an uncomfortable way,” she said.
