Abstract:
The present invention addresses the problem of providing a needle holder for endoscopic surgery and a suturing method employing the same with which it is possible for a suture thread to be wound simply and reliably around a needle holder during a suturing process in endoscopic surgery, in particular during ligation. The present invention provides a needle holder for endoscopic surgery characterized in that the needle holder is provided with a main body portion in a distal end part of which is formed a needle-holding grip portion which grips a needle part of a needle-equipped suture thread, and a holding portion which is formed on the needle-holding grip portion side of the main body portion and which forms a gap for holding the suture thread part of the needle-equipped suture thread, and in that the holding portion is formed in such a way as to open and close freely in the direction of the distal end part. The present invention also provides a suturing method employing this needle holder.
