Retractors, Wire

Retractors are used to hold an incision or wound open while a surgeon works. The retractor could also be used to hold tissues or organs out of the way during a surgery. Wire retractors are the simplest style of retractor. Usually the wire has some spring so that the surgeon can pinch it together, position it and release it. These also free up the surgeon's hands.

Retractors are used to hold an incision or a wound open, to hold an organ or tissue out of the way to expose what's underneath. We stock three broad categories of retractors. 

  • Hand retractors must be held by an assistant, a robot or the surgeon during a procedure.
  • Self-Retaining Retractors have a mechanical device for holding tissue during surgery, allowing hands free operations. Self-retaining retractors have a screw, ratchet or some type of clamp to hold the tissue by itself. These allow the surgeon to operate with two free hands.
  • Wire Retractors are the simplest style of retractor. Usually the wire has some spring so that the surgeon can pinch it together, position it and release it. These also free up the surgeon's hands.

Our most common retractors include the Belfour, Gelpi, Weitlaner, Barraquer, Wire and Stevenson retractors.
