Purpose designed, the jaws of the Ligament Clamp have multiple small gripping teeth to combat synovial fluid slip. The T handle push knife is only sharp on the inner curve, not at the tips. Suitable for larger patients.
Broad blade Hohman provide more effective retraction of large muscle masses than the standard version, with less focal pressure. Suggested uses: 48mm blade – larger dogs for elevation of femoral head and neck. 24mm blade – muscle retraction during plating procedures.
Ideal for careful retraction of soft tissue during the manipulation of smaller bones and fragments, aiding reduction of soft tissue devascularisation. Also allow delicte retraction of soft tisse fpr screw and wire placement. 8mm version is particularly good for long bones in the cat.
Designed to separate the femoral component of the stifle from the tibia. For the best exposure joint surfaces should move away from each other in a parallel fashion exposing The meniscus in its natural state and minimally distorted by the examination. Distractor is self-retaining. When closed the tips overlap making the points atraumatic as they enter the joint and reduce their profile for insertion into the joint.
Exposure of the medial meniscus is never easy. Access is limited. The stifle levers are designed to fit the trochlea, while the atraumatic tip hooks behind the caudal tip of the tibial plateau. The levering action spreads the load over the surface of the trochlea, more effectively than a Hohman. Two sizes to cover most cases.
