traxi FAQs

Can I use Alexis-O® or Mobius® incision site retractors with traxi?

Yes. There is no reason you could not use both an internal and external retractor. However, we feel the retraction a correctly applied traxi provides will clearly expose the surgical site and may eliminate the need for indwelling retractors.

How do I apply traxi?

Step by step instruction for proper application can be found HERE. If you need further assistance please contact Customer Service at +61 7 3862 2000.

How long can I leave traxi on a patient?

According to the package insert, traxi can remain on a patient for up to 24 hours. However, if you plan to leave the device in place after a procedure, it is important you clean the patient’s skin according to your hospital protocol.

Is traxi applied as a sterile product?

Depending on what you currently use to retract the panniculus, it is likely not sterile. However, traxi is supplied sterile and can be applied aseptically. If you want to prep the patient before applying the device to ensure a sterile field, traxi can be applied once the prep is completely dry. Tape, straps, clips, etc. are typically not sterile and traxi can also be used in the same exact way as these. Applied to the patient and then prepped over the top.
