    Abstract

    A distal anchoring portion is provided for insertion into a wound interior. An elongate portion extends from the anchoring portion to laterally retract the sides of the wound opening (2). A flexible opening portion partly opens an instrument seal (3) to allow insertion of an instrument (6). The opening portion is partly movable relative to the seal to open it. The opening of the seal is biased towards closed arrangement and includes a pinhole opening (4). A reinforcement portion is radially located outward the seal opening for reinforcing the seal upon engagement with an instrument.
