The MTI-0 uses the shape memory properties of SUPERFLEX to spread the leaflets of the mitral valve, exposing the papillary muscles. Follow the link below to see what other surgeons have to say about it.
"The universal retractor can be used for every type of sternal access in cardiac surgery, ranging from minimally invasive incisions using the J-type mini-sternotomy, Z-type mini-sternotomy to full sternotomy approaches. Different variety of blades sizes as well as their flexibility (aprox. 15 degrees) allow during sternum retraction to adapt to individual thoracic cavity stiffness of the patient and allow for even more distribution of mechanical forces applied to the sternum, thus minimizing surgical damage."
The Cebotari Sternal Retractor system allows for an unmatched exposure of the IMA. See it in action below!
