Hand Wrist Fxator
Its applications in foot and hand surgery are quite successful.
There are span and non-span fixation options for wrist and ankle fractures.
In the Spannig fixation model, the distal radius fragments are minimally fixed with wires. Then the joint is distracted by placing a fixator between the second metacarpal and the radius body.
In the non-spanning technique, the distal radius fragments and radius body are fixed with a fixator. Reduction is provided. The wrist joint is released.
