LIVER RETRACTOR, 10MM, 33,0CM / 13 1/4″

The Liver Retractor is a surgical instrument specifically designed for retracting the liver during surgical procedures, providing access to the surgical site while minimizing trauma to the surrounding tissues.

  1. Purpose: The Liver Retractor is used to hold and retract the liver gently, exposing the surgical field, particularly during abdominal surgeries where access to the liver is necessary. It assists surgeons in maintaining a clear view of the operative area while protecting delicate structures and minimizing the risk of injury.
  2. Size: The Liver Retractor specified here has a diameter of 10mm and a length of 33.0cm (or approximately 13 1/4 inches). The diameter indicates the thickness of the retractor’s shaft, while the length refers to the overall size of the instrument. These dimensions ensure compatibility with the anatomy of the liver and the surgical approach.
  3. Design: The Liver Retractor typically consists of a long, slender shaft with a curved or angled tip at one end. The curved tip is designed to fit around the edge of the liver, allowing the surgeon to retract it gently without causing damage. The opposite end of the retractor features a handle or grip for easy manipulation by the surgical team.
  4. Material: Liver retractors are commonly made of high-quality stainless steel or medical-grade materials, ensuring durability, corrosion resistance, and compatibility with sterilization processes. The handle may have a textured surface or ergonomic design to provide a secure grip and comfortable handling during surgery.
  5. Usage: Surgeons use the Liver Retractor in a variety of abdominal surgeries, including liver resections, hepatectomies, and procedures involving the biliary system or liver transplantation. The retractor is carefully positioned to lift and hold the liver away from the surgical field, allowing the surgeon to perform the necessary procedures with clear visibility and access.
  6. Sterilization: Like all surgical instruments, the Liver Retractor undergoes thorough sterilization before each use to prevent infection and ensure patient safety. Sterilization methods may include autoclaving, chemical disinfection, or ethylene oxide gas sterilization, depending on the instrument’s material composition and design.
