Retractors have a significant role in surgery.

•       They allow surgeons to navigate through minimally open and deep cavities in a better way and can be easily held by an assistant

•       Provide better visibility to the surgical site during and at the end of the surgery that benefits both the patient and the surgical team

•       Holdbacks the underlying organs or tissues for better exposure to the site


Ribbon retractors are ergonomically designed making them a user-friendly tool for surgeons. The unique design of this tool allows surgeons to easily and comfortably position and control the retractor during surgeries. The primary component of the ribbon retractor is the blade or ribbon that retracts the organs or tissues during surgical practices. The blade or ribbon is generally flexible and flat allowing it to conform to the operative field's contours. The handle is attached to the blade/ ribbon and provides a secure grip for the surgeon. Some ribbon retractors have a locking mechanism that may consist of a screw, a ratchet, or a lever allowing the ribbon or blade to be securely held in place. Some ribbon retractors have a tension adjustment mechanism that permits the surgeons to control the amount of force used to hold back the tissue.
