    A Better Spreader
    ...for the subscapularis and perhaps the split deltoid, too.
    Anterior approaches to the glenohumeral joint leave the intrepid shoulder surgeon the option to either split the subscapularis muscle and tendon or sever it along its bony attachment where it joins the coracoid process. When opting for the former method, Buxton's 24-5914 Subscapularis Spreader is the ideal instrument of choice. Its long arms curve through a sweeping arc of nearly 90° to reach deep into the wound. This versatile instrument is also useful for retracting the deltoid for small incision procedures such as the mini-open rotator cuff repair.
