Percutaneous K-wire fixation can be an easy-to-perform and cost-efficient
alternative to lag screw fixation. However, the disadvantages of K-wire
fixation remain, most notably less stability, lacking compression and the risk
For K-wire fixation, introduce 2 unthreaded K-wires percutaneously, ensuring
that they cross the fracture plane as perpendicularly as possible. To reduce
the risk of displacement, insert the K-wires at diverging angles.
Confirm reduction using image intensification.
Cut the K-wire outside of the skin and bend them.
