Retractors, Surgical, Brain, Self-Retained

Definition : Brain surgery retractors designed to temporarily separate and hold back segments of, or the entire brain, to expose and provide access to other tissues and/or intracranial structures. They include a mechanism that retains its position once set (i.e., self-retained retractors). These retractors usually consist of two rake-like blades whose distance can be adjusted using a ratchet mechanism that includes scissors-like proximal ends. Self-retained brain retractors are used for surgery of the brain structures and cerebellum.
