The world's longest Tuohy needle?
Manufactured to order by Bignell Surgical Instruments Ltd, of Arundel, Sussex, England, this needle is 980mm in length. It was given to Dr Alan Caunt, obstetric anaesthetist, as part of his retirement present! Bignell Surgical Instruments Ltd can manufacture many types of needle to order. Several items in our Museum's needles section were kindly donated by this company.
