    Most procedures that require exposure of the wrist joint requires us to go through the third and fourth compartment. This is followed by dividing the septum between the 3rd and 4th compartments and retracting the EDC tendons ulnarwards. This can be done by various techniques. Using a form of self-retaining retractor is cumbersome and has to be repeatedly repositioned as the tendons keep slipping out. We describe a novel method to maintain this retraction throughout any wrist procedure.
