Retractors, Surgical, Brain

Definition : Surgical retractors designed to temporarily separate and hold back segments of (or the entire) brain, to expose and provide access to other tissues and/or intracranial structures. These retractors are frequently manual, handheld instruments consisting of flat, malleable, doubled-ended strips that are either straight or curved (e.g., following an "S" shape). These retractors come in a variety of sizes in order to accommodate the brain sulcus, fissure, or margin to be retracted. Also available are self-retained brain retractors capable of retracting the entire brain..
