- SURE Retractors: The use of single-use, sterile, pre-packaged surgical retractors in spinal surgeries has garnered increasing attention due to their potential benefits, including the reduction of surgical site infections (SSls), improvement in patient outcomes, cost savings, reduction in staff and preparation time, improvement in surgical efficiency and volume, and reduced environmental impact. This paper presents a comprehensive analysis of these benefits and discusses the implications of adopting single-use retractors in spinal surgeries.
