Mediflex “FLEXGUARD” – prevents retractor trauma

This important study Dr. Hale and his associates shows the forces generated on a standard surgical retractor blade with and without a polyurethane attachment (FlexGuard®).  The study showed that the FlexGuard® protected blade applied 82% less overall mechanical force to the pelvic side wall compared to steel retractors in a maximum retraction during a simulated caesarean section.

This is particulary relevent for patients undergoing lower pelvic open cases – particularly c-sections, bariatric and oncology procedures and other cases where where the forces involved and the duration of the procedures increase the risk of trauma and therefore post-operative adhesions which delay recovery.
