Peer-reviewed publication in Trauma Surgery and Acute Care Surgery Open states the TITAN CSR® retractor "...has the potential to become the new retractor standard."
OCT. 24, 2023
A peer-reviewed case series from University Hospital, a Level 1 Center in San Antonio, Texas, describes their 1-year experience using the TITAN CSR® retractor providing rapid and effective abdominal exposure without a table attachment.
Used in 89 cases in adult and pediatric trauma and emergency surgery operations, the TITAN CSR® retractor "provided rapid setup and effective exposure without requiring a table attachment, allowing quick access to the abdomen during emergency procedures."
"As a result of its faster assembly compared with table-mounted systems while providing equivalent exposure, this retractor has the potential to reduce time in the OR and improve overall efficiency."
"We have used this retractor now for over a year and conclude that the use of the TITAN CSR is safe and effective in gaining optimal exposure in abdominal surgery, and due to its various benefits, it has the potential to become the new retractor standard."
