  • stiffness
  • 3,10,11 Through the use of tensioned fine wires as fixation elements, as opposed to half-pins, ring fixators are imparted with elastic properties and a low axial stiffness, while simultaneously preventing excessive bending and translational shear through high bending and translational rigidity. (scielo.org.za)
  • 2,3,10 Tensioned fine wires also contribute to the circular external fixator's ability to exhibit increased axial stiffness with higher loads. (scielo.org.za)
  • elbow
  • We also did resection of radial head in 7 cases with repair of LCL, coronoid, MCL and of both flexor and extensor muscles, with repair of all other primary and secondary stabilizers(except radial head) and elbow was stabilized by orthofix hinged external fixator for 6 weeks, with comparable results.

  • pins
  • Because of this, and because germs live on the outside of the fixator, pins or skin, they can cause an infection at the pin site since a pin makes a direct pathway to the bone. (nursingcrib.com)
  • adjustment
  • The fixator also allows for the adjustment of the alignment and for compression/distraction both during and after surgery. (biomedcentral.com)
  • 10. The adjustment tool according to claim 7, wherein the actuation element of the blocking sleeve is an inner rotatable shaft having a reception for receiving the actuation head of the locking element of the clamping assembly for releasing the rod of the external fixator.

  • The present invention relates to an adjustment tool for an external fixator adapted for securing a first bone portion in a position relative to a second bone portion, wherein the adjustment can comprise a compression or a distraction. (patentsencyclopedia.com)
  • surgery
  • The use of this fixator also helps during the surgery (stage 1) as resurfacing of the raw areas becomes quick because 2 surgeons can perform this simultaneously. (ovid.com)
  • treatment
  • The use of circular fixators, in particular, has been avoided in HIV-positive patients due to the prolonged periods of treatment required. (springer.com)
  • Case
  • The technique of simultaneous ipsilateral femoral and tibial lengthening was shown to be an effective method of shortening external fixator time in this case and opens the door for further application of this technique in other clinical scenarios. (scielo.org.za)
