Retractors, Surgical, Bone, Femur

Definition : Bone surgery retractors designed to temporarily separate and hold back one segment (usually one head or head and neck) of the femur, exposing and providing access to other tissues, organs, or structures during orthopedic (e.g., hip) surgery procedures. These retractors may consist of manual, sturdy, handheld instruments consisting of a curved, flat shaft with a two-pronged blunt blade forming a small angle to the shaft at the distal tip and an integral flat handle at the proximal end. Retractors with two adjustable blades and scissors-like proximal end with a self-retention ratchet are also available. Femoral retractors are used in trauma and/or orthopedic reconstructive procedures involving the femur (e.g., to distract the femur head and neck laterally) improving the access to the hip joint.
