SK ESF FAQs
In addition to removing frame elements (i.e. conversion of a Type || or a Type |.b to a Type |-a), carbon fiber composite rods can be substituted for titanium rods as part of the staged disassembly of a small SK fixator. If one considers only Type |-a frames, the following very general guidelines can serve as a starting point:
These recommendations are general guidelines only. On radius/ulna fractures, it is often prudent to consider the use of a Type |-b frame when unsure. With tibial fractures, also consider the use of a Type |-b frame or a minimal aggressive strategies will increase the potention need for staged disassembly but will support early weight bearing and function.More information go to: www.imexvet.com
