    Abstract

    The device (90) has two instrument seals (71, 72) for effecting a seal around two instruments extended through the device, respectively. The instrument seals are arranged in sealing relationship to a body of a patient. A distal anchoring ring (401) is provided to locate within a wound interior. A retractor with a sleeve (402) extends proximally from the distal ring to retract laterally sides of a wound opening. One instrument seal is spaced apart and is formed separately from another instrument seal. The retractor extends between the distal ring and a proximal member.
