Abstract

This invention is a flexible, length-adjustable suture organizer (200) coupled to a retractor (202) having a number of flexible straps (224). The straps are tensioned to retract tissue, while the suture organizer is used to retain sutures extending through an opening created by the retractor. The retractor includes a holder (226) which retains the suture organizer.
