Carotid endarterectomy continues to be an operation that is widely employed and associated with excellent outcomes. Challenges to attain adequate field visualization do occur. A new retracting device is described that vastly improves operative field visualization, particularly in the upper area where high lesions and limited cervical mobility can restrict or hamper technical maneuvers. Complex maneuvers such as mandibular subluxation or osteotomy may be obviated.
