Distractors, Surgical

Definition : Distractors designed to separate the surfaces of a joint without displacement and/or rupture of the ligaments (i.e., distraction) during surgical procedures. These devices are typically a mechanism that may include clamps, screws, levers, and a platform; the mechanism is frequently attached to the operating table. Surgical distractors are intended mainly to permit manipulation and locking of an articulation in several positions while maintaining distraction, improving visualization of articulated spaces, and providing greater distance between distracted surfaces, facilitating operative procedures in the joints; they may also provide stable traction for reduction and fixation of joint and other small fractures. Dedicated surgical distractors intended for use in the hand, wrist, shoulder, knee, spine, and hip articulations are available.
