The purpose of this study was to determine the respective contribution of each of the following parameters to the compressive, bending, and torsional rigidity of the Kirschner-Ehmer (KE) external fixation splint as applied to canine tibiae with an osteotomy gap: bilateral versus unilateral splints; increasing the number of fixation pins; altering the diameter of fixation pins and side bars; decreasing side bar distances from the bone; increasing pin separation distances in each pin group… CONTINUE READING
