    Abstract

    The retractor has a connecting member extending between a proximal member and a distal member to retract sides of a wound opening (6). A release member (81) releases the distal member from a retracting configuration for removal of the distal member from the opening. The release member is stowed away before the release member is required to be used to release the distal member. An outer layer of a sleeve (2) is interposed between a proximal ring (4) and a guide member (51) to control pulling of the sleeve, and the opening is biased toward a closed configuration.
