Preliminary K-wire

Preliminary K-wire

Provisional fixation can be done using K-wires. If solid screws are to be used, be sure to place the K-wires so that they will not interfere with the subsequent screw placement.
If cannulated screws are used, the guide wires can be used for provisional fixation.
Take care not to penetrate the joint with the K-wires, or screws.
