Retractors, Surgical, Abdominal Wall, Self-Retained, Laparoscopy

Definition : Abdominal wall surgical retractors designed to retract any of the edges of incisions performed during laparoscopic surgical procedures that include a mechanism that retains its position once set (i.e., self-retained retractors). These retractors usually include a very sturdy mechanism with blunt distal blades that are deep enough to hold back all the tissues from the skin to the peritoneum. The opening mechanisms are appropriate for small laparotomy and/or suprapubic incisions. Laparoscopic abdominal retractors are available in a great variety of shapes and mechanisms. They are selected according to the tissue and/or abdominal structure or organ to be exposed. Dedicated retractors are available for particular abdominal structures and/or organs (e.g., gall bladder, appendix, uterus).
