Abstract

• A combined needle holder and scissors was designed in two sizes, one for use in muscle surgery and oculoplastic surgery and the other in microsurgery. They have been used with suture sizes 10-0 to 6-0 and needles from 75 to 200 μm in diameter and have been found to be useful in cataract, squint, and oculoplastic surgery.
