Retractors, Surgical, Bone, Humerus

Definition : Bone surgery retractors designed to temporarily separate and hold back one segment (usually one head) of the humerus, exposing and providing access to other tissues, organs, or structures during orthopedic (e.g., shoulder) surgery procedures. These retractors are typically manual, sturdy handheld instruments consisting of a doubled, curved, flat shaft with a U-shaped blunt blade with ends perpendicular to the shaft at the distal tip and an integral rounded handle at the proximal end. Humerus retractors are used in trauma and/or reconstructive procedures involving the humerus (e.g., to distract the humerus head laterally) improving the access to the shoulder joint.
