The choice of needle shape is frequently governed by the accessibility of the tissue to be sutured, and normally the more confined the operative site the greater the curvature required. The basic shapes involved are: straight, 1/4 circle, 3/8 circle or curved, 1/2 circle, 5/8 circle, half curved, J shape Needle and compound curve.
