Retractors are incarnations of the expression, “an iron fist in a velvet glove.” Whilst being very strong the handles operate smoothly and  offer a comfortable but firm grip. The perfectly bevelled blades and prongs allow atraumatic pressure of tissues, cartilages and bones. The highest grades of “medical metals” and craftsmanship ensure that Delacroix-Chevalier  retractors last a lifetime.




Auto-static retractors maintain the retraction by themselves around the operative field as a result of a tension maintaining system.


Hand retractors are manipulated manually to expose or retract during a specific procedure.


How to determine the quality of a retractor


Smoothness of the rack, proper clearance of sliding elements, stiffness of the arms and blades to give overall ease of use.


Proper use of austenitic and martensitic high-grade stainless steel, aluminium, titanium, careful welding techniques, and regularity of surface sandblasting prevent disruptive light reflections. Delacroix-Chevalier and Landanger retractors have a mirror finish on the inner part of blades to prevent the tissue from sticking.


Basic Care


For ease of use, the auto-static retractors’ sliding elements and rack must be regularly lubricated. Regularly control lubricant dosing of washing machines. Please use a dedicated small basket for small mobile parts of retractors to avoid losing pieces. We also offer products to lubricate the retractor before its use.
