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

Definition : Laparoscopic surgery self-retained retractors designed for temporary lifting and holding back the abdominal wall, exposing and facilitating laparoscopic procedures on tissues or organs in the peritoneal cavity. They are intended for single-use (i.e., disposable). These retractors typically consist of manual, self-retained instruments including two "J-" or "V-" shaped paddles (vanes) radiating from a shaft at the working end, resembling an open fan (also known as fan retractors). The paddles are usually introduced into the peritoneal space through a small incision at the umbilicus. They are then spread to the open position and then attached using a connector to a specially designed external coupling arm, retracting the abdominal wall as the arm is lifted. Disposable laparoscopic retractors may be used both in standard pneumoperitoneum laparoscopy and in gasless procedures.
