Abstract

Small external fixators have been developed for use in the hand and wrist. The main indications are stabilization of open or infected fracture or non- union of the metacarpals and phalanges; length maintenance in segmental bone loss; and distraction-lengthening of the fingers. The device may be used also for articular or periarticular fracture, closed diaphyseal fracture in adults, fracture in children, various arthrodeses, or corrective osteotomies.
