BACKGROUND We reviewed our results and complications of using a pre-bent 1.6 mm Kirschner wire (K-wire) for extra-articular metacarpal fractures. The surgical procedure was indicated for angulation at the fracture site in a true lateral radiograph of at least 30 degrees and/or in the presence of a rotatory deformity. METHODS A single K-wire is pre-bent in(More)

Wireless technologies are especially critical in this context as the economic costs of(More)
