Product DescriptionThe ARAS Retractor provides a streamlined access solution that maximizes direct visualization in MIS procedures.FeaturesARAS provides direct visualization that adapts to address anatomical challenges and surgeon preferences through a less invasive, muscle-splitting approach.The ARAS Retractor split-tube design expands via smooth, self-locking rails to achieve the desired exposure.Curved rails on the ARAS retractor provide greater distal exposure with a smaller incision while matching the lordosis of the lumbar spine.
The ARAS Retractor Instrumentation is intended to provide surgical access to the thoracic and lumbar spine from a posterior and posterior lateral approach.
