Acute aortic insufficiency as a result of aortic dissection, endocarditis, or balloon valvuloplasty, requires urgent surgical intervention.
Retractors are used for retracting the tissue surrounding the wound or a surgical incision. When the subject of surgical intervention is a body part to which the approach is blocked by underlying organs or tissue, the retractors are used to hold back those organs or tissue and enable the surgeon full access and visualization of the subject.
