Circular/Hybrid ESF Fixation Wires
Fixation wires are the key bone fixation elements in circular fixation and most hybrid ESF frames. They are available in several diameters and in smooth and stopper wire versions.
Stoppers, or “olives” are expanded areas along an otherwise smooth wire. Stoppers function somewhat analogous to threads in fixation pins in that they provide additional stability by their physical presence against the bone. Stopper wires are available in 3 diameters.
