Abstract

Objective: The purpose of this article is to describe the experience of using the elastic self-retaining retractor in gynecology. Design: The article is designed as a case series report. Materials and Methods: The use of minilaparotomy with elastic self-retaining retractor (Mobius, Apple Medical, Marlborough, MA), for both adnexal masses and large uteri in 5 cases, is described. Results: There were no intraoperative or postoperative complications. All patients had minimal blood loss and were discharged home on postoperative day 1. Conclusions: Minilaparotomy with self-retaining elastic retractor is a useful alternate to traditional laparotomy and laparoscopy. (J GYNECOL SURG 28:347)
