Cerclage Wire is an extremely useful method of fragment fixation. Use as thick a Wire as seems possible. Twist evenly under tension. The best instrument is our Wire Twister/ Cutter 001260. Minimise wire movement on periosteum. Tension wire banding should be performed where muscular forces must be transferred beyond a fracture or osteotomy, e.g. Tibial crest avulsion or trochanteric osteotomy. 1.0mm Wire is the most
useful for mid-sized dogs. All are supplied in 10 metre rolls.
