Pretty much what we have on ours for ED thoracotomy - we also have a
air-powered saw for sternotomy in the OR set.

For the lap set: lots of large lap pads; no 23 scalpel and handle, large
Mayo and small mayo scissors; large and small McIndoe scissors; lots of
clamps - all sizes from Halstead-mosquito, through small Crile, Birkett's;
Crafford and Roberts; soft and hard bowel clamps and the usual selection
of needle drivers. Retractors include Morris (X2); Zcerny, Langenbeck and
Deaver (X3). Also straight Crawford vascular clamp and on some sets a
"Barker-spoon" for pressing on the aortic hiatus. Finally the usual supply
of swab holding forceps, DuValle gallbladder clamps and a small Satinsky

Regards
Tim
