Legend :On this picture, a needle 27g has been broken in 3 pieces during a gluteopexy by a physician.
The physician didn t take care about the hardness, unflexibility and curve of the needle.
Fortunately the 3 pieces have been eliminated by themselves without damaging the patient: No emergency surgery was needed, following the diagnosis of the radiologist.

MANAGING NEEDLES DURING ENDOPEEL PROCEDURES

In such case, it is easy to understand that following points are important:
- the needle has to be as much flexible as possible. ( That s why we chose BD)
- never remove the bubbles through the needle, which will be in contact with the patient, otherwise the needle will be hard at 1 st injection, which may create pain and discomfort to the patient.
- never take off the syringe-needle slowly, otherwise you may traumatise the tissues with a ,, hard,, needle, which will provoke an unuseful pain and edema.
- if you have difficulties to inject, remove immediately the needle from syringe and put a new needle.
- if the patient feels pain at moment of injection, remove the needle from syringe and put a new needle
- control at each injection if your needle is not curved.In case your needle is not any more straight, remove it and put a new needle.
