Surgical Retractor Kits, Spine, Lumbar

Definition : Spine surgery retractor kits designed for use during procedures involving the lumbar spine (i.e., lumbar vertebrae) segment. These kits typically consist of a collection of devices, instruments, and supplies that are combined to temporarily separate and retain tissue or other anatomical parts (e.g., muscles), exposing and/or giving access to the lumbar spine without manual support once they are set (i.e., self-retained). The kits frequently include retractor frames, one or more sets of detachable (e.g., solid and toothed, hemilaminectomy) blades, nerve root retractors, a ratchet mechanism, and fixation posts with nuts or screws; the kits frequently incorporate fiber optic systems to illuminate the surgical site. Lumbar spine retractor kits provide hands-free assistance to the surgeon during procedures such as discectomy, spinal fusion, and/or other lumbar surgery procedures. Dedicated lumbar retractors intended to perform anterior and posterior lumbar procedures are also available.
