Operative axillary exposure can be conveniently maintained by means of a table-based retractor which serves to displace the pectoral muscles medially. The shoulder is abducted and the arm hung from the horizontal cross bar of the device. By means of this method, complete axillary clearance can be accomplished with less assistance and improved visibility for the participants.
