Extension Bows

The Xelpov’s Extension Bows are commonly used by orthopedic surgeons for temporary fixation of fractures that require skeletal tractions.

  • Three traction hooks available.
  • Thumb screw facilitates increasing bow width
  • Available with two sizes to suit different surgical indications”

Xelpov’s Extension Bows enable doctors to fix bone fractures properly in order to avoid malunions. Surgeons attach the bow to extension pins inserted into the bones. They need this to make a temporary fixation so that the fracture heals correctly.

Surgeons start by drilling screw pins in the distal segment of the fractured bone. Then, they attach the bow to these pins to keep the two sides of the fracture aligned. This is important to prevent wrong unions and deformities.

We make the standard Xelpov’s Extension Bows with a horseshoe frame. They are available in two sizes to suit diverse patient groups.. These are a small bow with an internal width of 180 x 100mm, as well as a large bow with an internal width of 270 x 160mm. In addition, the inner screw bar allows you to open the arms of the bow to a wider distance.

We offer three traction hooks with the bow. In addition, we also make other devices like the Bohler Extension Bows to make traction systems that fit a wide variety of approaches. You can use these tools to suit every patient’s needs.

SURTEX® Instruments manufacture these devices from premium grade stainless steel that you can depend on for years of fine service.
