About this product

Division: Shoulder Reconstruction

The GLOBAL ENABLE Glenoid Exposure System is designed to simplify glenoid exposure during primary and reverse shoulder arthroplasty. GLOBAL ENABLE System provides a step-by-step methodology for glenoid exposure with consideration for challenging exposure situations. The retractor set includes eight retractors designed for Access, Protection, and Control.

Throughout the glenoid exposure process, three functions are highlighted for their contribution to Access, Protection, and Control. Used together with the GLOBAL ENABLE Glenoid Exposure System, these three steps will improve the ability to gain consistent glenoid exposure.


Features & Benefits


  Features Benefits

Blunt Point Gelpi

  • The Blunt Point Gelpi is a self-retaining retractor with blunted ends that retracts soft tissue without damaging it
  • The Blunt Point Gelpi is used to control soft tissue throughout shoulder replacement surgery and is frequently used to open the deltopectoral interval

Reverse Hohmann

  • The Reverse Hohmann is designed to protect soft tissue and neurovascular structures, specifically the axillary nerve, during soft tissue releases
  • Additionally, it can be used to retract soft tissue and muscle in large, bulky patients

Proximal Humerus Spreader

  • The Proximal Humerus Spreader is designed to give the surgeon access to the glenoid without interference
  • The Proximal Humerus Spreader has a flat plate that rests on the humerus osteotomy surface and a saddle that is placed on the base of the corocoid
  • As the spreader is engaged it retracts the humerus posteriorly to the glenoid, increasing access to the glenoid, allowing the surgeon to more easily prepare the glenoid surface

Medium Acromial Retractor

  • The Medium Acromial Retractor is designed to be used to control soft tissue in large, bulky patients as well as control and dislocate the humerus out of the shoulder joint before humeral head resection

Anterior Glenoid Neck Retractor

  • The Anterior Glenoid Neck Retractor protects the subscapularis and anterior capsule after the subscapularis tendon has been released. In larger patients, it is used to protect the pectoral muscle and surrounding tissue

Modified Sonnabend

  • The Modified Sonnabend is an exclusive retractor found only in the GLENOID ENABLE System set
  • Designed with a 6mm lip to retract the humerus posteriorly after humeral head resection
  • This offset facilitates access to the glenoid

Small Pectoral Retractor

  • Designed to control and position the deltoid muscle laterally and superiorly.
  • Bilateral flares on the blade are designed to help reduce the risk of soft tissue damage

Forked Retractor

  • Designed to increase access to the glenoid for patients with smaller anatomic features.
  • A center cut out in the retractor is designed to allow better access to the glenoid during instrument use or placement
