The outer slotted ring is hinged to allow conformation to the body shape and to direct the angle of traction of the bungee-type elastic stays. The outer ring segments are manufactured from Noryl resin is supplied sterile and many surgeons re-autoclave. The silicone bungees will tolerate some autoclaving. The elastic stays are manufactured from flexible silicone with the stainless steel hook moulded into an ergonomic finger grip. The silicone shaft is grasped by the slots in the outer ring in an infinite number of positions. The stays may be used to retract different layers of soft tissue with differing tensions and angle of pull. The whole system sits neatly on top of the patient without obscuring the operative field. Some abdominal approaches require a more complex retraction system than a simple Balfour or Gossett. The V.I. Ring Retractor allows the surgeon to place hooked retractor strips around the periphery of a surgical incision which may then be tensioned individually and retained around the edge of the ring. The standard segments creates a square 14cm x 14cm. An extended version creates a rectangle 25cm x 14cm which can be reduced to a square 14cm x 14cm. The Ring is laser cut from stainless steel which is thin enough to mould to the profile of the patient. Slots are cut every 15mm around the periphery of the ring into which lock one or more retractor strips.

Case: Alasdair Hotston Moore Case: Alasdair Hotston Moore Prepubic tendon rupture repair The Strips are manufactured from silicon with a stainless hook. The strips are autoclavable but will require periodic replacement. All the Rings fit into a standard ‘Little Sister’ type autoclave. An Extra Large Ring (220 x 250mm) which can be folded has been added to the range. Once folded the ring will again fit into a standard ‘Little Sister’ Autoclave. Please Note:VI Sterile Hooks are compatible with other retractor systems.
