Rapid Retraction. Superior Exposure.
No Table Attachment.
The TITAN CSR
The TITAN CSR™ is a lightweight surgical retractor that combines the speed of self-retaining retractors and the exposure of traditional table-mounted systems, all without a table attachment.
Expanding Modular Arms rapidly retract and eliminate the need for multiple retractors or rings.
Four-blade configuration provides superior exposure and prevents unintended rotation.
Compatible with Bookwalter®* blades for exposure of deep and retroperitoneal structures, the TITAN CSR™ accommodates incisions from 13 to 37+ cm lengths.
Surgeons are currently forced to choose between speed and functionality when selecting surgical retractors. Their options are:
Self-retaining retractors which provide rapid retraction but limited exposure
Table-mounted retractors which provide optimal exposure but require time-intensive assembly and setup
The TITAN CSR™ combines the advantages of multiple retractors in one novel device:
Designed for ease-of-use and quick assembly, the TITAN CSR™ achieves exposure equivalent to a table-mounted system 50x faster
Post-Free™ design eliminates post-related obstructions and setup challenges
Titanium construction, weighs two pounds
Enables quick assembly and eliminates post-related setup challenges
Allows rapid assembly around surgeon's hands when manually controlling life-threatening hemorrhage
Rapid Modular Assembly
Compatible with Bookwalter®
Adaptable to Length of Incision
I would use the TITAN CSR™ ... every time because it's faster, more easily deployed, provides the exposure of the abdomen I need, and is adaptable."
