Majority of surgical procedures require incising the skin of the patient to operate on organs.  These incisions are small and narrow, which require the use of surgical retractors to keep them open during the surgical procedure. Thus, a surgical retractor is a medical instrument, which is employed in keeping the surgical incision open while a surgeon operates. These instruments work by holding the tissue or organs out of the way to provide a clear view of the surgical site or organ under operation. Hand retractors, self-retaining retractors, and wire retractors are the various retractors available in the market. A self-retaining retractor allows hands-free operation during a surgery, whereas a hand retractor is held by a surgeon during a surgical operation.
