Symmetry Medical Inc. has launched twelve new line enhancements to the BOOKWALTER Retractor System through its hospital direct surgical instrumentation division, Symmetry Surgical. The BOOKWALTER Retractor System was included as part of Symmetry's recent acquisition of the surgical instrument portfolio of Codman & Shurtleff. These new product enhancements reduce the overall tray weight of a complete BOOKWALTER table mounted retractor system while providing increased usability. Another new feature is the introduction of reusable radiolucent blades for use in procedures where an intra-operative X-Ray is used as part of the surgical intervention. In support of meeting the challenges of surgical intervention on the obese patient population, an expanded ring system has been added to increase surgical exposure and also enhance the benefits of Symmetry Surgical's OPTI-LENGTH surgical instruments.
