The wide range of “hands-free” and “self-retaining” retractor systemsavailable through Ark Surgical continue to gain favour withsurgeons at veterinary practices, hospitals and referral centres alike.

Ark Surgical retractor system According to the company, the easy-to-use-system offers unparalleled access to the surgical site. Surgeons that have recently used the system indicate its usefulness for routine procedures such as bitch spays, the investigation and removal of small growths and tumours through to the more challenging and exotic surgery such as a swan ventriculotomy to remove a swallowed lead weight.

Laurent Findji, specialist in small animal surgery at the VRCC Referral Centre, Essex, said: “The exposure it provided was excellent.”

The procedure was a revision surgery after total ear canal ablation. The bottom picture (right) was taken during surgical exploration and resection of a fistulous tract originating in the tympanic bulla.
