Retractors, Surgical, Multipurpose

Definition : Surgical retractors designed to temporarily separate and/or hold back the edge of incisions performed in one of many different anatomic structures, exposing and providing access to other tissues, organs, or structures during a variety of surgical procedures. Most of these retractors are manual, handheld instruments available in a variety of shapes and styles, typically including one or more sharp or blunt distal blades and a handle; the size and shape of the retractors depend on the anatomic structure to be retracted and/or the procedure to be performed. Some multipurpose surgical retractors used to keep open a surgical incision during a long period of time can retain their position once set (i.e., self-retained retractors); the retractors may also provide fiber optic illumination. Multipurpose surgical retractors are used in many types of procedures, such as plastic, general-purpose, bariatric, and orthopedic surgery.
