    Abstract

    Traditional self-retaining retraction devices do not always provide adequate exposure and, on occasion, hamper economy of movement during vascular surgical procedures. We report the novel use of elasticated retractors to improve surgical exposure for vascular access procedures that may be transferable to other vascular surgical procedures.
