Exposure and stability perfectionize abdominal vascular surgery
Especially in abdominal vascular surgery good exposure of the relevant vessels facilitates the operation essentially.
Good exposure demands a retractor that has two functions: retraction of surrounding tissue, gut, colon and fat and the exposure of the pathological vessel. The idea of the Zeitlin retractors is based on these demands. The curve-shaped Zeitlin retractors provide wider and more stable exposure of the tube-type anatomical structures such as aorta and iliacal arteries in the abdominal cave. With the help of just one Zeitlin retractor it is possible to achieve a better exposure as with two conventional retractors.
