External pin bone external fixators are designed for fixed external orthopedic systems to stabilize fractured bones other than the spine.
Shans, wires and pins are commonly used to connect bones. They are often used to hold small pieces of bone together for fixing with screws. In many cases, pins are used in conjunction with other internal bone fixation tools, but they can also be used alone to treat complications and fractures of small bones, such as those in the hands or feet. The wires usually leave the patient’s body after a certain period of time, but in some cases they may remain permanently in the patient’s body.
The system may include some suitable tools for grafting implants (eg screwdrivers, bumpers, drills). Fracture System External orthopedic systems are designed to heal and repair broken bones rapidly compared to cast casting by providing an irregular fracture motion during the healing process. They are mainly used to help heal the proximal or distal ends of long bones such as the femur and in fractures of the wrists, elbows, knees and thighs. Dedicated systems are available for a specific type of break stabilization.
