External Fixators

External fixation

Circular or semicircular fixators allow for multiple planes of fixation, which produces frame behavior largely eliminating the harmful effects of cantilever loading and shear forces, yet accentuating axial micromotion and dynamization.

Multiple connecting bars or a full circular frame is preferred with a minimum of four half-pins attached to the shaft component.

Description: If the patient is weight bearing, and the limb is loaded, then further wire deflection tension occurs.

Thus, a simple four-pin frame placed along the anterior border of the tibia will resist the anterior and posterior forces generated with normal stride, while this frame is weakest in mediolateral bending.
The small tensioned wires may be used in concert with limited open reduction if necessary.

    Below are a few of the indications for external fixation devices: Unstable pelvic ring injuries Comminuted periarticular fractures such as pilon, distal femur, tibial plateau, elbow, and distal radius fractures Fractures with large amounts of soft tissue swelling Fractures in a patient that is.

    External fixation is contraindicated under the following circumstances: 2 ๏ปฟ Bone-related disorders or deterioration that make stabilization less assured. Persons who are not able or willing to properly care for the pins and wires. A person with severely compromised immune systems who are at higher.

    An external fixator is a stabilizing frame to hold the broken bones in proper position. In an external fixator, metal pins or screws are placed into the bone through small incisions into the skin and muscle. The pins and screws are attached to a bar outside the skin. Sometimes day to day activities can seem more challenging when you have an external fixator.

    External fixators are metal devices that are attached to the bones of the arm, leg or foot with threaded pins or wires. These threaded pins or wires pass through the skin and muscles and are inserted into the bone. The majority of the device is outside of the body, which is why it is called an external fixator.
