Needles are the most widely used medical device. A 26-gauge hypodermic needle is a simple hollow instrument; however, its use in dermatologic procedures are numerous. Needle can be used as a cutting instrument and can be used as an extractor. Here, I present a simple innovation that makes the grip of fingers firm over the needle and thus extraction of lesions becomes easy and faster. Insert the tip of the needle in the front portion of the lead pencil and one can hold the needle like a pen which makes the removal of lesions easy. The front portion of a pen is made up of metal and thus it can be sterilized in an autoclave. A video demonstration of this innovation is attached.
