Non-sliding pins in traction absorbing wiring of fractures: a modified technique.

PMID:  7090759     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
By using a newly constructed pin instead of Kirschner wires in the traction absorbing wire (TAW) technique, the clinically observed sliding of the Kirschner wires and resulting skin problems are avoided. The pins and the internal fixation technique are described. In order to demonstrate the simplicity and reliability of the technique a follow-up study 7 years after performed surgery is presented. The late results are given of a series comprising the authors' first 10 consecutive cases of closed transverse olecranon fractures treated by this new technique of internal fixation.
