Anterior Lumbar

Thompson’s Radiolucent Anterior Lumbar retractor blade kits feature:

  • Phenomenal exposure of the anterior lumbar spine
  • Elimination of shifting or “rise up” in the wound
  • Blade lengths up to 200mm for larger patients

The anterior approach to the lumbar spine is heavily dependent on the ability of the access surgeon to provide exposure quickly and safely. Exposure of the anterior lumbar spine and safe retraction of the abdominal and vascular structures are crucial for successful lumbar fusions and decompressions. The Thompson Retractor provides safe and effortless Uncompromised Anterior Lumbar Exposure.
