Crutchfield Skull Traction Tongs

Xelpov’s Crutchfield Skull Traction Tongs is a specialized surgical tool that neurosurgeons use for statically holding the skull and the neck, in order to expose the cervical spine in an optimal position.

  • Distal Point Holders for Statically Fixating the Skull.
  • Screw Mechanism for Locking the Jaws.
  • Fixating Base for Easily Attaching into the Operating Table.

The Crutchfield Skull Traction Tongs offers a wide range of surgical benefits. Its principal use is to provide an efficient method to gain maximum exposure of the cervical spine during certain surgeries.

For this purpose, the instrument features a pair of curved, crossed arms that ensure atraumatic skull fixation. In addition, a central rivet joint attaches both arms, thereby ensuring smooth movements.

Furthermore, surgeons can insert the distal point holders into the parietal bones for avoiding accidental skull rotations. In this way, the Crutchfield Skull Traction Tongs help in preventing surgical accidents and complications.

Moreover, the arms connect to a fixation base that surgeons can attach to the operating table. Also, surgeons can open and close the arms at the desired width using a screw lock mechanism.

Manufactured in premium grade stainless steel with a fine satin finish that reduces glare.
