Using blunt dissection, protect the cutaneous branch of the radial nerve and the tendons. Damage to the cutaneous nerve can cause a painful neuroma The K wires used in hand fracture fixation are strong enough to support fracture fragments but not to resist bending and straightening of the finger. Sudden extra loads on the finger, particularly if the splint has been removed for some reason, can result in the wires breaking inside the finger or falling out K-wire protrusion through the skin Cut the K-wire so that it protrudes through the skin, about 1 cm from the tip of the finger. Bend its end to form a tight U-configuration to prevent catching on clothing, etc. Leaving the K-wire to protrude through the skin in this way has the advantage of its being easy to remove
CONCLUSION: An anatomical reduction is essential in mallet finger deformities. Open reduction and internal K-wire fixation can be preferred due to its low complication rate and ease of application in patients whose mallet deformity cannot be treated by closed reduction An anatomical reduction is essential in mallet finger deformities. Open reduction and internal K-wire fixation can be preferred due to its low complication rate and ease of application in patients.. Kirschner wires or K-wires or pins are sterilized, sharpened, smooth stainless steel pins. Introduced in 1909 by Martin Kirschner, the wires are now widely used in orthopedics and other types of medical and veterinary surgery. They come in different sizes and are used to hold bone fragments together or to provide an anchor for skeletal traction. The pins are often driven into the bone through the skin using a power or hand drill. They also form part of the Ilizarov apparatus. Kirschner wires us 4 K-wire Fixation, Intraosseous Wiring, Tension Band Wiring Lindsay Muir, Anuj Mishra, Zafar Naqui Abstract We have at our disposal ever more sophisticated plate and screw systems for use in the treatment of hand fractures. While the most modern of these are excellent, there are still circumstances where the use of more traditional methods may offe
In 1988, Ishiguro et al. proposed closed reduction and K-wire blocking for fixation when treating mallet fingers with avulsion fractures, which had achieved good efficacy [ 8, 9 ]. Currently, it is widely used in clinical practice, and some modified methods have been adopted [ 10 ] The major concern about K-wire fixation for finger fractures is that the fixation is not strong enough to allow early movement. Early protected movement for finger fractures is important becausea stiff finger is a useless finger. The concerns that surgeons have traditionally had with regard to early protected movement with K-wire fixated finger fractures are (1) fear of loss of reduction and.
This study describes surgical outcomes of mallet fractures of the finger with distal phalanx treated by modified pull-out wire fixation with Kirschner wire (K-wire) stabilization of the DIP joint. Rationale: Mallet finger fracture is a common sports-related injury that may lead to the tearing of extensor tendon and protrusion of a bony fragment located at the base of the distal phalanx. We affirmed that the elastic fixation of with two K-wires technique is a good method to deal with Mallet Finger fractures that fractures could gain effective fixation than the conventional treatment. The position of the first (and most important) K wire is planned in advance and then identified on the patient's finger using the image intensifier (this can be helped by marking the skin with a sterile marker pen). The K wire should aim to cross the fracture perpendicular to the fracture line. It should also allow for placement of at least one and preferably two other K wires. The first K. Hello friends,In this video i have described K wire fixation of 5th finger proximal phalanx fracture of right hand under ring bloc The surgical procedure was designed to first insert a 0.8 mm diameter K-wire from the dorsal side of the bony fragment to the middle phalanx, as close to the bony fragment as possible. The second 0.8 mm-diameter K-wire was inserted from the tip of the distal phalanx to the middle phalanx so that the finger is distally slightly hyperextended
Kirschner-wire (K-wire) fixation for 3-6 weeks is an approved method for stabilization of the fingers after the release of flexion contracture deformity. On the other hand, articular surface damage in small joints due to pin fixation is still a topic of debate. Reports claiming permanent joint destr Pressing fixation of mallet finger fractures with the end of a K-wire (a new fixation technique for mallet fractures).

Author information: (1)Department of Hand Surgery, Second Hospital of Tangshan, Hebei, People's Republic of China From May 2003 to January 2008, we performed K-wire and pull-out wire fixation in 65 closed mallet finger fractures in 65 patients. This study was composed of 44 men and 21 women with a mean age of 32 years (range, 18-48 y). The injury occurred in the right hand in 45 patients and in the left in 20
Orthopedics | This study describes a new technique called the fish hook technique for the treatment of bony mallet finger. This technique catches the dorsal fragment with a bent K-wire. Another disadvantage of K-wire placement is the potential for migration, which can be especially problematic if the wire/pin migrates into the thorax or the abdomen/pelvis from an adjacent fracture fixation (e.g. from a sacral fracture into the pelvis). Bending the wire or use of threaded wires are thought to decrease the likelihood of migration A majority of surgeons (83%) reported always giving antibiotics on induction when performing K-wire fixation and 33% always prescribe a postoperative course. Most surgeons reported removing exposed K-wires from phalangeal fractures at 4 weeks (60%) and buried wires at 4 weeks (32%) or 6 weeks (28%). For metacarpal fractures, nonburied wires were most often removed at 4 weeks (60%), whereas. Internal fixation devices include pins, wires, screws, plates, and intramedullary nails. Placement of internal fixation devices immobilize the fracture site; it is not a form of fracture reduction. Internal fixation does not always require direct exposure of the fracture site, however, in most cases it does. Pins can be introduced through the skin and drilled into the bone to provide fracture. This article introduces the use of a K-wire to press fixation of mallet finger fractures, which can be an optional solution. We find that pressing fixation of the bone fragment with the end of a K-wire is a useful technique for the treatment of mallet finger fractures. Various methods have been described for the management of bone mallet injuries. Hofmeister et al. treated displaced mallet.

Average extension lag was 4°, and active flexion 71°. According to the Crawford rating scale, 35 fingers were excellent, four were good, one was fair, and one was poor. Conclusions: Pressing fixation of the bone fragment with the end of a K-wire was a useful technique in the treatment of mallet finger fractures Anatomic Assessment of K-Wire Trajectory for Transverse Percutaneous Fixation of Small Finger Metacarpal Fractures: A Cadaveric Study. Grandizio LC(1), Speeckaert A(1), Kozick Z(1), Klena JC(1). Author information: (1)1 Geisinger Medical Center, Danville, PA, USA. BACKGROUND: The purpose of this cadaveric study is to evaluate the trajectory of percutaneous transverse Kirschner wire (K-wire. The hypothesis was that headless compression screws would show higher stiffness and peak load to failure than K-wire fixation. Methods. Eight matched-paired hands (n = 31), using the ring and little finger metacarpals, had metacarpal fractures simulated at the physeal scar. Each group was stabilized with either a 3.5-mm headless compression screw or 2 .045-in (1.1-mm) K-wires. Nineteen.

Fingers in group A were treated with bone-cement K-wire fixation, and fingers in group B were treated using a plate-and-screw system. RESULTS: Follow-ups lasted 2 years. In group A, active range of motion of proximal interphalangeal joint reached 93% ± 6.7% of the opposite fingers. In group B, the data reached 86% ± 14.4% of the opposite fingers. Based on total active motion scoring system. Kirschner wire (K-wire) fixation of fractures and dislocations of the hand and wrist is a common procedure. Of the 590 K-wire fixations performed on 236 patients, 36 (15.2%) experienced complications which included osteomyelitis, tendon rupture, nerve lesion, pin tract infection, pin loosening or migration. There were no deep soft-tissue pin infections or pyarthrosis. Technical failure, mainly. Interfragmentary lag screws and percutaneous K-wire fixation both depend on the inherent stability offered by fracture fragment contact. In the presence of substantial comminution, this inherent stability is lost, and the fixation materials need to function in a load-bearing capacity. This usually requires the use of a plate . At the P1 level, the concern with plates is the added potential for.
Kirschner wire (K-wire) fixation of fractures and dislocations of the hand and wrist is a common procedure. Of the 590 K-wire fixations performed on 236 patients, 36 (15.2%) experienced complications which included osteomyelitis, tendon rupture, nerve lesion, pin tract infection, pin loosening or migration. There were no deep soft-tissue pin infections or pyarthrosis finger and concomitant fractures of the same handin order to reduce confounding factors. Patients were divided into two groups based on methods of fixation (Group A: 23-Gauge needles; Group B: k-wire). Treatment details All treatments were performed under local anesthesia. Following fracture reduction, in Group A, fractures were Table 2 Time to union (≤ 40days or>40days) and AROM six months. the volar pad of the finger that, if not addressed promptly, can result in irreversible ischemia or in gangrene and eventual amputation of the tip. Closed injuries can result in fracture of the distal phalanx, dislocation and collateral ligament injuries of the distal interphalangeal (DIP) joint, closed avulsions of the flexor digitorum profundus (FDP) and mallet fingers, and articular damage. We had 86 patients with phalangeal fractures, and 50 patients underwent K-wire fixation due to various indications like unstable phalangeal fractures, fractures with rotations and angular deformity, multiple phalangeal fractures in the same hand and avulsion fractures (e.g. central slip avulsion, mallet finger). Rest of the patients (36) were treated either conservatively or eliminated due to. Thirty one consecutive patients, 25 men and 6 women with closed metacarpal shaft fractures of the little finger who have been treated with closed reduction and percutaneous retrograde intramedullay K-wire fixation, were analyzed retrospectively. We excluded the comminuted fractures in this study. Preoperative evaluation of hand function showed that none of the patients had any pre-existing.
K-wire fixation: Kirschner wire fixation Orthopedics The use of Kirschner wire to fix fractured bone and soft tissues for tractio This open fracture was treated with K-wire fixation. Postoperatively, he developed a pin site infection with associated finger swelling. The K-wire broke during removal with the proximal piece completely retained in his middle phalanx. To minimise risk of osteomyelitis, the K-wire was removed with a novel surgical technique. He had full return of hand function. Intraoperative K-wire breakage. If surgical treatment for metacarpal shaft fractures is considered, we recommend antegrade intramedullary K-wire fixation. This technique results in low complication rates and excellent functional outcome. Introduction . Fractures of the metacarpal bones account for a significant part of fractures in the hand; percentages up to 40% are described in the literature with a shaft neck ratio of. Dynamic external fixation for PIP fracture-dislocations rotation of the proximal phalangeal head and confirmed on lateral fluoroscopy. The wire is then advanced through the opposite cortex and skin. It is paramount that there is an even amount of wire on each side of the finger so that there will be an adequate amount of wire after bending to hold the rubber bands. The second K-wire is.
For the tailor's bunion or lesser metatarsal neck surgery, perform the same technique, substituting a 0.045 K-wire. The intramedullary pin fixation technique is also quite simple. After removing the cartilage from the base of the middle phalanx and head of the proximal phalanx, use a 0.054 K-wire to make a pilot hole in the middle phalanx and the proximal phalanx. Cut off the tip of the wire. Closed Reduction and Percutaneous Pinning Percutaneous K-wire fixation is the most common method of operative stabilization of unstable proximal and middle phalangeal shaft fractures once satisfactory reduction has been achieved. Care is taken to try and avoid violation of the extensor hood, central extensor tendon, and neurovascular bundles. Early range of motion following percutaneous K-wire. A total of 104 patients (131 fingers) were randomly allocated into group A (56 patients) and B (51 patients). Patients in group A were treated with cemented K-wire fixation; and patients in group B were treated with conventional mini-plate. Bone healing, range of motion of the fingers, costs of treatments, and patient satisfaction were assessed
One of the techniques is percutaneous K-wire fixation to the finger skin for the exposed ends7. The physicians use variable options for the protection of the secured end of K-wires based on their prefe-rences. Mostly, the options available for this purpose are utilized practically. In practice, numerous options with various materials can be found worldwide with great ease of access. In the.

In the case of spiral and long oblique diaphyseal phalangeal fractures, Kirschner (K) wire fixation has been used with success.2 Miniature lag screws have been suggested as more dependable in. Although splinting is the treatment of choice for most type I mallet finger injuries, surgery may be advantageous for individuals who are unable to comply with a splinting regimen or for patients who would have difficulty performing their jobs with an external splint (eg, surgeons, dentists, musicians). 1,20 To immobilize the DIP joint in extension, a transarticular Kirschner wire (K-wire) is.
After a mean follow-up of 4 months, the total active motion was considered excellent in 5 fingers and good in 2 fingers.We demonstrate a favorable outcome following closed reduction and percutaneous periarticular single K-wire fixation for displaced unstable transverse fractures of the proximal phalanx in elderly osteoporotic women Metacarpal Fracture Open Reduction and Internal Fixation !erapy Instructions Laith Al-Shihabi, MD 0-2 weeks Patients are treated with a home motion program for the !rst 2 weeks while a splint/cast is in place.
