GEORGE VAOKERHAGEN, OF BROOKLYN, NEW YORK.

SURGICAL NEEDLE.

SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 312,408, dated February 17,1885.

Application filed September 14, 1884. (ModeL) To all: whom, it may concern:

Be it known that I, GEORGE WAOKERHA- GEN, of Brooklyn, in the county of Kings and State of New York, have invented a new and Improved Needle for Interrupted or Continuous Suture, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description.

My invention consistsin an improved form of needle for sutures.either interrupted or continuous, which can be used without removal from its holder during an operation, and which covers the thread, so as to carry it through the tissues easily.

Reference is to be had to the accompanying drawings, forming part of this specification, in which similar letters of reference indicate corresponding parts in all the figures.

Figure 1 is a perspective view. illustrating the use of the needle. Fig. 2 is a side view of the needle. Fig. 3 is a cross-section of the same in larger size; and Fig. 4 represents the needle as made for continuous suture.

The needle A, which may be either straight or of the curved form shown, is formed with a groove, a,.exteuding from its base to near the point on its outer surface or under surface in use. A short distance from the needle- For continuous suture the nee- Having thus described my invention, what I claim as new, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is

1. The needle for sutures, formed with a lengthwise channel or groove, and with a depressed bridge, I), crossing the groove near the.

point of the needle, substantially as described.

2. The needle A, formed with groove a and depressed bridge b, and with an eye near its blunt end, as and for the purpose specified. GEORGE \VAOKERHAGEN. Vitnesses:
