Abstract

The purpose of this study is to describe the features and benefits of Oh's Retractor. Oh's Retractor is a new, easily adjustable instrument for anterior cervical approach procedures. It delivers improved stability, precision, and ease-of-use compared with currently available instruments. The major contribution of this invention is its radically new design which allows the surgeon to logically adjust the instrument step-by-step as needed during the procedure. The instrument provides both a wide range of maneuverability and fine-tuned precision. Existing retractors may present cumbersome and precarious conditions due primarily to difficulty in stabilizing the instrument for the operative field. In contrast, Oh's Retractor can be easily stabilized. This paper illustrates how Oh's Retractor optimizes surgical performance and saves time by providing the benefits of greater stability, precision, and ease of use.
