The related needle is grasped in a position to function while the operator's hand is in a neutral and comfort position. The needle automatically moves into an ideal position between two target points in a straight vertical rather than elliptical motion as in conventional needle drivers. So, the VNH, available in multiple sizes, provides the following advantages:

This allows greater ease and precision in tissue handling for surgical procedures such as tissue and vessel dissecting and closing wounds by allowing a single surgeon to perform the procedure without help of an assistant and a second pair of forceps. This forceps, available in multiple sizes and designs, provides the following advantages:
