Orthopedic External Fixation Systems, Fracture

Definition : External orthopedic fixation systems designed stabilize fractured bones other than those in the vertebral column. These systems typically consist of an external plastic and/or metal fixator and other external and/or implantable components such as clamps, bone screws, cams, bushings, and collars; the systems may also include some instruments appropriate for attaching the implants (e.g., screwdrivers, punch impactors, drills). Fracture external orthopedic fixation systems are intended for better and quicker healing of fractured bones compared to plaster casting by providing a better fracture fragment immobilization during the healing process. They are used mainly to help the healing of the proximal or distal ends of long bones such as the femur and in joint fractures of the wrist, elbow, knee, and hip. Dedicated systems intended for a specific type of fracture fixation are available.
