Olsen-Hegar by STILLE is a popular needle holder with scissors for suturing and cutting with the same instrument. Intended for 0 suture and finer. STILLE’s needle holders are easily recognized by their delicate and slim design, which helps holding the needle very secure. The gold handles indicate that the jaws are fitted with Tungsten Carbide inserts to prolong the instrument life.
Stille is renowned for its unique, light and well-balanced instruments with strength for all types of tissue with minimal force, not just when new, but after many years of use.
The slender design and excellent balance are the characteristics which make the STILLE Instruments easily recognizable. Their highly polished surface and delicate design make STILLE instruments lighter and easier to keep clean, thus more durable against discoloration and corrosion. All this provides STILLE instruments with a unique and outstanding feeling.
Stille is the only medical instrument maker in the world that still manufactures instruments from tubular steel in their own forge. For makers of precision surgical instruments, production has always maintained its artisanal character. They rely not only on drawings but, just as much, on their own sense of functionality and feature.
A complete instrument works like a model. The dimensions are already in the hands. Instrument makers know the precise bend with their own fingers, and they know how a perfect instrument should feel in the human hand. Minimum defects are immediately evident. Instrument makers share that special fingertip sense of functionality with the surgeon.
Surgical hand instruments manufactured by Stille carry a guarantee in respect of materials and workmanship. For a period of 30 years after purchase, we will replace or repair a damaged instrument free of charge if the damage is found to have been caused by a defect in materials or workmanship.
The guarantee is conditional on the instrument being used for the purpose intended, is cared for and stored correctly and that any claims are made in in writing within 30 days of the damage occurring.
A perfect result when suturing requires a reliable and durable instrument. Stille needle holders are easily recognized by their delicate and soft design, which helps the plastic surgeon to hold the needle very securely. The golden finger loops indicate that the jaws are fitted with inserts of hard metal, which prolongs the life of the instrument. Some needle holders are instead coated with Diamond Jaws where hard metal is sprayed on as a thinl ayer on the inside of the jaws.
Another feature of Stille’s needle holders is the open box lock. This reduces the risk of the needle holder being caught in the sutures or the surgeon’s gloves. It also simplifi es the cleaning and sterilization process.
