Surgical Retractor Kits, Subcutaneous Tissue, Internal Mammary Artery

Definition : Subcutaneous tissue surgical retractor kits designed for use during excision of the internal mammary artery. These kits typically consist of a collection of devices, instruments, and supplies that are coupled together for temporary separation and retention of subcutaneous tissues in the axillary area, exposing and/or giving access to the artery without manual support once they are set (i.e., self-retained). Internal mammary artery retractor kits usually consist of one or more bars, a set of detachable blades usually providing lateral retraction, ratchet mechanisms to adjust retractor tension and depth, and a fixation post that is attached to the operating table. They provide hands-free assistance to the surgeon during procedures intended to excise the internal mammary artery for posterior use as a graft.
