Surgical Instruments Online Australia have an extensive range of retractors and hooks for use in the operating theatre, day surgery or endoscopic clinic.
Retractors are used during open surgical procedures to hold open a wound by pulling at the edges of an incision. Retractors can also be used to move or hold an organ, muscle or tissue to allow viewing underneath. This allows the surgeon access to the surgical site
The retractor range includes delicate hook retractors, delicate retractors, dura and skin hook retractors, nerve hook retractors, double ended retractors, self retaining retractors, standard retractors, and vein hook retractors.
Standard retractors can be used by hand of the surgeon or surgeon's assistant and this type usually is single or double ended. The range includes the Volkmann retractor, Kocher retractor, Langenbeck retractor, Senn Miller "catspaw" retractor and the Deaver retractor
Self retaining retractors are commonly used and the ratchet/locking mechanism can be applied to clamp the retractor at a certain angle or width. Self retaining retractors can have smooth blades or toothed blades to secure the site. This range includes the Bellucci self retaining retractor, Gelpi self retaining retractor and the Weitlaner self retaining retractor.
Hooks are used in a similar way to retractors but feature a long rod with single or double ended tips. These tips can be sharp or blunt and are used to hold and move nerves, veins and smaller vessels.
