Kirschner Extension Bow (U Shaped)

Xelpov’s Kirschner Extension Bow (U Shaped) is commonly used by orthopedic surgeons for temporary fixation of fractures that require skeletal traction.

  • Ergonomic horseshoe shape with holes for traction hooks.
  • Thumb screw facilitates opening the arms of the bow.
  • Available with several sizes to cover upper and lower limb fractures.

Xelpov’s Kirschner 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. Therefore, we designed the bow’s horse shoe frame with a long profile to increase its reach.

After that, the surgeon places the bow on a stirrup. The stirrup should rotate freely on its swivels and often requires lubrication. We made the symmetrical frame with two screw locks to hold and stabilize the bow in place.

We make the Xelpov’s Kirschner Extension Bows in different sizes for both upper and lower limb fractures. We also offer 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.
