We supply this as a complete set or just the frame and offer the option to select the singer small rake reactor. Whatever your needs might be, we aim to provide a large range of options for your surgical requirements. 

A rib spreader, also known as Finochietto retractor, is a type of retractor specifically designed to separate ribs in thoracic surgery. Rack-and-pinion -type stainless steel rib spreaders (with a thumb-screw to lock it in place) were an innovation introduced by French surgeon Theodore Truffier in 1914.
