Subject: takedown surgery vs take down surgery--which is correct? nm
I am not sure, it sounds like deet or geek. and then he says using the "geek", so not sure if it would be using the "deep".
Being an x-surgical tech, I can assure you that there is no such thing. I think Dee Lee is your best bet, especially if it was a gyn report.
It is Weitlaner, positively.

Subject: retractor confusion
Stedman's 3rd edition Ortho Word Book shows Hohmann retractor and Homan retractor...but no Holman listing. Stedman's Medical Equipment shows "Hohmann," "Holman lung" and a plain "Holman" listed under retractors...but no Homan (as found in Ortho). Logically, since Holman does not appear in the Ortho listings and Homan does not appear in the Equipment lisings, that leaves Hohmann....but also leaves one to wonder what the plain "Holman" retractor is in the Equipment book and why the Ortho book shows the "Homan". Still confused.

The word that sounds like Lexis retractor is actually Alexis retractor, and comes up in Google search as Alexis wound retractor.

Subject: Charnley retractor....sm
The use of a Charnley retractor enables a surgeon in a community hospital to perform an intertrochanteric hip fracture procedure with only the aid of a scrub technician. The Charnley retractor will hold Bennett retractors placed superiorly and inferiorly to the femoral neck--thus making it easy to obtain exposure.
