The Hawkins Blunt Needle permits location and identification of the reference plane during the prostate seed implant procedure. There are two needle stylets provided : a sharp stylet for insertion and positioning and a blunt stylet to avoid damage at the prostate / bladder interface.



  • Provides a lightweight method of targeting, remaining in place while position is confirmed. 

  • The adjustable needle stop localizes the outer cannula to the target, preventing forward migration.

  • The outer cannula has an echogenic tip,promoting accurate placement under ultrasound guidance.

  • Numerically ordered centimetre markings on the outer cannula facilitate precise depth placement.

  • Accomodates most guide wires, biopsy needles and biopsy instruments.

A range of Needle gauges and lengths are available. Please see the below information sheet :
