Abstract

A microsurgical instrument incorporating a needle holder and scissors was developed and used in 14 operations. The combined instrument was used with #9–0 to #10–0 sutures for hypoglossal facial anastomosis (n=2) and free radial forearm flaps (n=9). Inadvertent cutting of sutures or tissue did not occur. The combined instrument may offer advantages in microscopic neck surgery, especially when assistance is not available.
