Distractors, Surgical, Hip

Definition : Surgical distractors designed to apply traction force to a lower limb (leg) allowing access to the hip joint space. The distractor applies traction, allowing the surgeon to adjust the angle of abduction/adduction of the upper femur head in the pelvis acetabulum. These distractors typically consist of an adjustable mechanism that may include clamps, screws, levers, and a strap and/or other accessory attached to the leg; the mechanism is attached at the other end to the operating table (e.g., on a side rail) or other type of support. The mechanism is usually adjustable to different sizes of patients' legs. Hip distractors are intended for use during hip joint surgical procedures, such as arthroscopic surgery.
