Orthopaedic Implant K-Wires
Each K-Wire implant reconstruction is a unique innovation in fracture repair, as every complex fracture presents its own unique challenges.
Typically used for interfragmentary reduction. K-Wires hold the bone fragment in place while a different orthopedic wire is wrapped around it to help secure the K-Wire. The two most common orthopedic wires used to secure this are gauge wire and AO wire. K-Wires are like pins except smaller in sizes like .035, .045 and .062. Because they are smaller they can be used in smaller animal bones.
