Manufactured by Kapp Surgical Instrument, Inc., the Cosgrove® Mitral Valve Retractor System provides exposure of the right and left atrium, tricuspid and mitral valve for surgical repair or replacement, while reducing the need for surgical assistance. The use of this retractor system provides the surgeon with the greatest visualization of the operative field.
The system can be mounted on virtually any chest spreader, i.e. the Cooley, Ankeney, Morris and Finochietto and on most other chest spreaders via custom attachment.
Dr. Delos Cosgrove and Kapp Surgical Instrument have designed a universal heart retractor system. This Cosgrove® Retractor System was designed and proven specifically for heart valve surgery with these features:
- Readily detachable self-retaining atrial retractor requiring placement only during the intracardiac portion of the procedure
- Universally adjustable atrial retractor blades made of malleable surgical stainless steel
- Several styles and sizes of retractor blades are available
- Kapp will provide the Cosgrove® Retractor System mounted on a Cooley Sternum Retractor or custom mounted on any other sternum retractor, on request.
