Retractors, Surgical, Urinary Tract, Bladder, Self-Retained

Definition : Urinary tract surgical retractors designed to temporarily separate and hold back the urinary bladder, exposing and providing access to other tissues, urinary tract, and associated structures, with a mechanism that retains its position once set (i.e., self-retained retractors). These retractors frequently include a mechanism with a blunt, central concave blade and two cup-like blades whose distance can be adjusted using a ratchet mechanism that includes scissors-like proximal ends. Some self-retained urinary bladder retractors include fiber optics to provide illumination to the surgical area.
