5Ring placement

Attaching ring to wires

A bilateral distractor may sometimes interfere with ring implementation. In these cases, if possible, it should be removed before ring application.

Connect the wires to the ring and tighten the clamps. This secures the articular fracture component.

After the wires are tightened, the pointed reduction forceps can be removed.
