Principles & Techniques of External Skeletal Fixation – I
You learned long ago that coaptation (casts & splints), intramedullary pins and cerclage wires all have their limitations for fracture treatment. External skeletal fixation (ESF) is often the logical ‘next step’ in your fracture treatment skill set. This DVD is a ‘must have’ for any veterinary practice that uses or wishes to use ESF for fracture treatment. If you’ve taken an ESF Course but could use a ‘refresher’, this DVD is what you are looking for! Video footage includes use of the IMEX SK fixator to treat fractures of the tibia, radius, humerus, and femur. Bonus video footage covers proper assembly of the IMEX SK clamp and step-by-step demonstration of ESF Bandaging and postoperative care. Dr. Palmer will guide you through ESF radiography and ESF frame removal. If you’ve got an ESF system in your practice (or would like to), you’ll want this resource on your shelf!
