Needle holders also called needle drivers are used for suturing wound closure, ligation, reanastomosis, and other surgical procedures. A clamp mechanism normally holds the needle in place, allowing the operator to manoeuvre it through various tissues. To keep a firm grip on the needle, the jaws are often rough and short in compared to the shank.
A needle holder is another instrument used in surgical procedures. Its primary function is to secure the needle used to suture the wound. The shape of the needle holder is similar to that of the forceps, but the front jaws of the two tools are different. In most cases, the needle holder is made of corrosion-resistant, high-strength, high-quality stainless steel. Surgeons use needle holders to keep surgical needles in place while sewing the patient’s tissue. Because surgical needles come in a variety of shapes and sizes, doctors employ a variety of needle holders. Surgical expert will select a needle holder with a small jaw when using a small surgical needle, they will also use a needle holder with a relatively large diameter when using a thicker surgical needle.
Ryder needle holders are used to hold little suture needles and have sensitive tips. The tips have tungsten carbide inlays and a cross-serrated pattern.

The tungsten carbide inlays at the tip provide the instrument more strength and ensure a longer effective life. Tungsten carbide inlays are indicated by the gold handle.
