External fixation with the Pennig Minifixator™ combines the advantage of secure fragment fixation with a minimally invasive procedure. Soft-tissue dissection is not necessary since, in general, indirect reduction is employed. With this system, the traditional three “R’s” of fracture treatment: Reduction, Retention and Rehabilitation are accomplished with a highly favorable risk/benefit ratio for both patient and surgeon.
- Secure fragment fixation with minimally invasive procedure
- Soft tissue dissection not necessary
- Allows placement of threaded wires parallel to joint surface and thus requires only minimal application space
- Reduced inventory since threaded wires do not need predrilling and are trimmed to length
