BACKGROUND A percutaneous cerclage wiring technique has been developed to reduce iatrogenic soft tissue and vascular disruption associated with classic cerclage fixation. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to evaluate the extent of femoral vascular disruption resulting iatrogenically from the application of two percutaneous cerclage wire loops. METHODS Pairs of cerlage wire loops were percutaneously inserted on 18 fresh cadaveric femurs. The position of the wire loops varied. The wire… CONTINUE READING
