"DO IT YOURSELF" ENTRY --- PURPOSE: Use of a surgical self- retaining retractor as a labia retractor to permit self-catheterization for a female C6-S7 quadriplegic. Describes use of a Weitlaner, an instrument used in the operating room to retract tissue, as an instrument to keep the labia retracted to enable a C-7 quadriplegic woman to catheterize herself in a sterile manner. Once opened the instrument remains that way until a release bar is pushed. The tips of the instrument are wrapped in gauze for use, and emphasis is placed on proper sterilization of the instrument between uses. Includes a photograph of the instrument.
