RadiaLux Lighted Retractors

General, Plastic, and Reconstructive Procedures in Breast and Open Abdominal Surgeries

Overview

Working though small incisions presents visualization challenges — especially in deep surgical pockets. The RadiaLux lighted retractor is a single-use, cordless illumination device for breast and open abdominal procedures. Powered by a low-temperature LED, RadiaLux features four interchangeable blades optimized for access in advanced breast surgery. With a specially designed lens, light is directed towards the back of the surgical pocket in a unique radius improving visibility in the plane of dissection.

Indications

The RadiaLux lighted retractor is a single-use retractor designed to provide surgeons with the ability to manipulate soft tissue through a combination of blades when assembled onto a retractor handle. The retractor provides illumination to the surgical field independent of an external light source or fiber optic cables.

The lighted retractor is indicated for enhancing visibility to a surgical field through retraction of soft tissue and illumination of the surgical cavity. It is intended for but not limited to general, plastic, and reconstructive procedures in breast and open abdominal surgery procedures.

TECHNIQUE TIPS

  • To detach a blade, while squeezing the release tabs, rotate the blade out of the handle. Do not apply pressure to the blade while squeezing the release tabs, as this will increase the force required to disengage the tabs.
  • Deactivate the light when not in use to preserve battery life.
  • You can remove any eschar buildup on the teeth with gloved fingers or gauze pads.
