Originally designed for OB/GYN and laparotomy applications, Retentus is especially beneficial when used on higher BMI patients to manage excess adipose in abdominal surgical procedures such as bowel resections, C-Sections (shown below), and hernias. Other applications for Retentus include anterior total hip (shown below), interventional radiology, cath lab, pain management, and wound care and exposure.
Retentus provides repeatable, predictable and reliable retraction. It also . . .
INTRAOPERATIVE AND INTERVENTIONAL:
. . . retracts and securely holds adipose tissue during the entire procedure to
provide access to areas of the body obstructed by excessive tissue.
Clinical staff will experience less strain and more confidence in positioning
the higher BMI patient.
. . . is sterile. After the patient is prepped, Retentus is applied asceptically.
. . . creates even tension in the dermis when making an incision, thereby
minimizing or eliminating jagged edges so wound margins are well
. . . does not impede diaphragmatic excursion when compared to existing
. . . is an impermeable fluid barrier, protects tissue from caustic fluids
during surgical/interventional applications.
. . . zero vapor transmission rate
WOUND CARE AND EXPOSURE:
. . . retracts and holds adipose for extended periods of time for post-operative
applications to provide a better wound healing environment and allows for
quick and easy dressing changes.
. . . surface is breathable and cleans easily; can be worn in the shower.
. . . fully adjustable.
. . . can be comfortably worn for up to ten days.
Every Retentus retractor:
. . . is hypoallergenic.
. . . contains no latex.
. . . has passed requirements for cytotoxicity.
. . . is made from medical grade tapes, fabrics, adhesives and silicones.
. . . has been tested under ISO biological evaluation for skin sensitivity
and primary skin irritation.
. . . is a flexible and malleable device that conforms to the patient,
accommodating the patient’s size and shape.
