5Screw and cerclage wire

Cerclage application

A 15 mm long 1.25 mm diameter cerclage wire is bent in the center and the two limbs crossed over each other. The loop is introduced through the proximal incision and carefully pushed distally.
Another option is to introduce a curved hemostat through the distal incision, grab the wire loop and pull it distally.
