Optimal frame construction
For the construction of the frame consider the following points:
- Pins are placed near the fracture site, but not too close and avoiding traumatized soft-tissue (a).
- Pins are placed widely separated in each main fracture fragment (b).
- Rods are connected to the pins with rod-to-pin clamps (c).
- The rod-to-pin clamps are fully tightened so that each main fragment has its own partial frame.
