Freeing the hands of the surgeon

LiNA SeaStar™ provides improved surgical space and visibility. Allowing you to focus on operating, teaching and training rather than retraction. Apply the LiNA SeaStar™ according to the following steps.

Image module

1. Place the LiNA SeaStar™ around the initial incision and insert the LiNA Skin Hook™ in directly opposing quadrants with equal tension.

2. As dissection progresses, move the position of the LiNA Skin Hook™ into the deeper layers of fascia. You may then add new LiNA Skin Hook™ or reposition those already in place to achieve full balanced retraction from any angle.

3. To ease closing, maintain constant opposing tension.

Slide "The use of elastic retraction has made a huge difference to the technical aspects of the surgical procedures that I perform. Even with multiple assistants, adequate exposure remains a challenge with vaginal surgery. The use of elastic retraction allows me to take control of visualization, and as such, allows me to operate in a more efficient manner. My assistants also love it as it allows them to concentrate on their learning experience rather than worrying about holding retractors immobile in an area that they cannot see! Another advantage of elastic retraction is the ability to dissect planes under tension by the use of the elastic stays- this is especially useful in patients with scarred planes from previous surgery, but I actually use elastic retraction in all my vaginal surgery cases because of the precision it permits in dissection without the use of multiple instruments and assistants.”
