Balfour Abdominal Retractors A Solution to Complex Surgical Problems

Organs and tissues are crowded extremely tightly together in both human and animal bodies, one on top of the other. As a result, neighboring tissues might impede vision and make entry to the surgical site difficult for the surgeon. As a result, surgical retractors are employed to remedy this issue.

Retractors are surgical devices used to open a wound or incision to do a proper medical evaluation. They hold tissues and organs away from the surgery site to provide the surgeon with a better view.

Types of Retractor

Retractors are of two types.

  • Handheld retractors
  • Self-retaining retractors

Manual operation is required for handheld retractors. Self-retaining retractors may be modified in a single location, freeing the surgical assistant from having to hold them all the time. They are simple to operate and can maintain a single position on their own.

Gelpi Retractor, Malleable Ribbon Retractor, Hohmann Retractor, Balfour Retractor, Baby Balfour Retractor, and other retractors fulfill specialized roles. Today, we'll go through Balfour Abdominal Retractors in depth.


Holder for Wounds or Incisions

During abdominal procedures, Balfour retractors are utilized to keep the wound or incision open for surgery. They provide access to the surgical site among the densely packed organs and tissues. They are essential in cesarean sections, laparotomies, liver and stomach procedures.

After getting access to the intestines, these retractors can be used to repair a damaged diaphragm and ablate it. Unlike the older versions, the redesigned Balfour Retractors enable the vet to quickly detach both arms from the cross-piece to put it into a tiny autoclave.

They are self-retaining and have adjustable construction and configurable sides to make the veterinarian's job easier. The Balfour abdominal retractor is made up of two wide and curved blades that are attached to a ratchet mechanism with a center blade.

The incision is opened by pushing the blades apart. The ratchet mechanism secures the blades in place. To improve visibility, the middle blade may be lowered or lifted. Some retractors also have the option of adding a fourth arm.
