External Fixation Set
The external fixation set is applied in such a way that one or two pins are drilled in on either side of a bone fracture, after which the pins are connected with a bridge bar and secured in a good repositional position of the fracture. The advantage is a simple surgical method that does not expose the fracture itself. This avoids the risk of infection, a notorious complication of internal fracture treatment.
External fixation also offers a safe and effective treatment for the treatment of complicated bone fractures, where the fracture is exposed to external infection through a wound. The external fixation set consists of several drill pins, bridge bars and disc clamps. A hand drill is optional.
