Retractors, Surgical, Rectum

Definition : Surgical retractors designed to temporarily separate and hold back the edges of abdomino-perineal surgical incisions, exposing and/or giving access to the rectum stump. Rectum perineal retractors usually consist of large, handheld manual instruments with two large curved blades at the distal end and two scissors-like handles with a ratchet that permits self-retention. Rectum retractors are used mainly in surgical procedures for excision of the rectum; other dedicated retractors intended to expand the natural anal canal and rectum are usually classified as rectal specula.
