The Small Ratcheted Distractor uses 1.5 or 1.6 ‘K’ or ‘A’ wires as distraction pins. The pins are driven into place through the tubes on the distractor arm. Threaded pins may be used for additional security. Squeezing the arms of the distractor separates the pins and thus the bone fragments and the ratchet holds them in the new position. Range of distraction 12mm - 60mm.
