Retractors, Self-Retaining

Self Retaining Retractors are used to hold an incision open while the surgeon works. Therefore, quality and reliability are key.

Platts & Nisbett manufactures thousands of retractors every year, and each one is individually made by hand in Sheffield.

Some variations of self retaining retractors include:

West Retractor, Weislander Retractor, Travers Retractor, Mollison Retractor, Norfolk & Norwich Retractor, Henderson Retractor, Jefferson Retractor, Plester Jansen Retractor, Gelpi Retractor, Browse Retractor, Harvey Jackson Retractor and many more.

So why are Platts & Nisbett self retaining retractors so well known for their quality?

What key features make their retractors stand out from the rest?

Firstly, they use only the highest quality raw materials; their Stainless Steel conforms with International Quality Standards in accordance with ISO 7153-1, and is fully traceable.

Then it’s all the extra touches, the attention to detail, the hand craft they put in to each and every one. The “set” or tension of the instruments is so important, and perfecting this can only be done by time served Surgical Instrument Makers. 

RETRACTOR RACK & TRIGGER MECHANISMS

All Platts & Nisbett Self Retaining Retractors are rigorously tested throughout manufacture and prior to despatch. Each rack and trigger are individually filed by hand, ensuring that the correct radius is achieved. This ensures smooth operation of the instrument, and guarantees that the retractor will not slip during use.

RETRACTOR TEETH

Teeth are bent by hand. Craftsmen ensure that the teeth intermesh correctly, so the Retractor can be opened and closed with ease. Perfectly formed teeth mean that the incision can be opened in a safe and controlled way during surgery.

If you’re already using Platts & Nisbett self retaining retractors, then congratulations on making a great choice. These surgical instruments will serve you well for many years to come.
