10Nail capping and wound closure

Using the 0 mm end cap

Pearl: Using the 0 mm end cap

With the AO expert tibial nail, the 0 mm end cap (the end cap which fits completely within the nail) may be inserted through the insertion handle. To do this, the connection screw has to be removed carefully without moving the insertion handle. The end cap can then be passed through the channel of the insertion handle. This is not possible for longer end caps as they are of a larger size.
