Retractors and spreaders for use in shoulder surgery
In shoulder surgery, the approach is of primary importance. The challenge arises from the regional complexity of anatomical structures and layers, which impede wide access to bony structures. Therefore, special surgical strategies are necessary for preservation of soft tissue and careful exposure.
Various dedicated shoulder instruments are now available to facilitate deltoid retraction, humeral head and glenoid exposure, while assisting in preserving the soft tissue during surgery.
