Pioneer Surgical Announces CLARITY Posterior Retractor System

Pioneer Surgical Technology recently announced the U.S. market availability of its CLARITY Posterior Retractor System, developed to help meet the challenge of reducing operating room time and improving patient outcomes.

The system reportedly allows for better visualization during fluoroscopy and is lightweight, yet strong enough to provide adequate muscle retraction for optimal visualization of the surgical site. CLARITY uses a strong and lightweight carbon fiber reinforced PEEK (PolyEtherEtherKetone) frame, which allows the retractor to be radiolucent, helping maximize the surgeon’s visualization for precise implant placement, according to the manufacturer.
