External Skeletal Fixation (ESF) is an excellent technique for fracture and osteotomy stabilisation and repair. It can be used for long bone fractures, spinal fractures and luxations, trans-articular immobilisation for joint instability, arthrodesis, angular limb deformity correction, and limb lengthening (distraction osteogenesis).
Veterinary Instrumentation have long been supporters of External Fixation techniques in fracture repair. It’s why Provet Vi supplies a range of options in types of clamp. Plus of course the matching bars in a wide range of sizes and not forgetting an excellent spread of external fixation pins, both positive and negative thread.
We also have some interesting clamp-free external fixation options such as the Fessa system, which are particularly useful in smaller patients.
Our catalogue contains a good overview of the subject but a step by step guide is also available on request.
