“Universal, extremely simple and incredibly strong... This is the “Kalashnikov” in the external fixation.” prof. Kukuruz J. S. Chief of Department of Traumatology of the Institute of Accident Medicine, Kiev, Ukraine; Former main front traumatologist in Afghanistan
PURPOSE System for axial external fixation is designed for orthopaedics and thraumatic surgery and is applied in treatment of long tubular bones. It represents a system of modules which when mounted form a multi - functional external construction. By means of this system, repositioning of bone fragments can be achieved; moreover, bone fragments can be immobilized in that position for a certain period by means of building an external supporting construction connected with the screws implanted in the bones.
APPLICATION AREA The system for external fixation "Nestorov" could be applied in the following cases: open and closed fractures in different places; single and multiplex fractures; in-joint and out-joint fractures; fractures with infections; unhealed fractures and complex joints /pseudoarthrosis/; shortened extremities.
CONTENT The system for external fixation "Nestorov" includes: set of different /in construction/ metal items (fixators), which could be joined to each other and form an external frame with multiple functions and different strength, in dependence of the place and purpose. metal screws, different in diameter and length, which are designed for implantation in bones. instruments, necessary for working with the system.
PURPOSE OF THE MAIN MODULES The metal frame of the external fixator consists of the following main modules: screw holder– fastens the implant screws, allowing compression or distraction of bone fragments thanks to the fixation of the screws in oblong holes compressor-distractor – connects two screw carriers by means of spherical links, ensuring compression or distraction of bone fragments. module with 2 spherical beds – connects two screw holders by means of spherical links module transferring 90 O – used in fixators designed for treatment of supracondilar fractures; module transferring 135 O - used in fixators designed for fractures of the neck of the femoral capitellum
PRINCIPLE OF ACTION OF THE MECHANISMS Consists of a nut (1), mobile connected with a pressing bush (2), moving linear along the threading stem (3) with cross holes (4) for the screws, finishing with unificated ball-and- socket joint. The screw (5) mounted in the bone is pressed to the bottom of the elongated hole by screwing the nut (1), as the positioned at the very beginning of the hole screw moves linear along the screw holder axis from 2 to 5 mm. MECHANISM, FIXING THE SCREWS
PRINCIPLE OF ACTION OF THE MECHANISMS The simpliness of this decision creates some interesting new possibilities: Reversing the direction of the bush movement creates conditions for compresson or distraction of the fixing screws in the screw holder. In this way, monofixators for multifragment fractures can be synthesized. Possibilities for independent assembly of the screws with different diameters /from 3 to 6 mm/ to all levels of the screw holder. Conditions for dosing the elasticity of the fixation at the very beginning of the treatment. Possibilities for combination of the screw holders /with 2 to 10 holes/ in order to achieve an individual strong frame, allowing screw tightening as near to the fracture line as possible. MECHANISM, FIXING THE SCREWS
PRINCIPLE OF ACTION OF THE MECHANISMS The ball consists of two parts: a solid polished one (4) made of stainless alloy, and a front soft one (3) - of aluminium. After achieving a good fragment reposition, the nut with the spherical interior plane (5) is screwed and presses the ball to the spherical bed (2). A screw (1) with a sharp conic point is screwed for additional interlock of the mechanism. This link enables the assembly of a wide range of apparatus. The assembled modules can be turned in relation to each other at an angle of 20 0 in all spatial positions. UNIFICATED BALL AND SOCKET JOINT
PRINCIPLE OF ACTION OF THE MECHANISMS UNIFICATED BALL AND SOCKET JOINT
PRINCIPLE OF ACTION OF THE MECHANISMS The mechanism comprises a threaded guide (5) ending with an element of the ball-and- socket joint (8) and having a rectilinear groove (6) along the threaded stem. The envelope (3) is screwed on the guide (5), both performing linear movement axially together with the follower (2). The turning of the follower (2) in relation to the guide (5) is blocked by the pellets (7), which move along the grooves (6) of the на guide (5). The nut (4) is intended to block the follower (2). This mechanism ensures stable and smooth compression-distraction, combined with reliable blocking in the desired place. COMPRESSION-DISTRACTION MECHANISM
PRINCIPLE OF ACTION OF THE MECHANISMS COMPRESSION-DISTRACTION MECHANISM
PRINCIPLE OF ACTION OF THE MECHANISMS The transferring modules have holes for the implant screws, their axes placed at an angle to the sphere axis. The holes are double conic, the bigger diameter turned outside. The screws used for these modules have threading on their stems. The screws are fastened in the holes by means of split conic bushes, screwed on the screw stem. When the bush is tightened, because of its conic shape, its segments are contracted, thus tightening the screw reliably. This construction allows adjustment of the screw position axially, ensuring precise repositioning of the bone fragments. MECHANISM OF TRANSFERRING MODULES
PRINCIPLE OF ACTION OF THE MECHANISMS MECHANISM OF TRANSFERRING MODULES
SCREW DESIGN Implant screws are combinations of a drill 1, screw tap 2 and screw 3. That allows screws to be fixed into the bone without preliminary preparation. At the beginning the screw is with an arc profile that slightly turns into cylindrical one. The threading of the screw is with a special self-locking profile that ensures the preservation of maximum osseous tissue. The end of the screw is with a triangular profile that allows fitting to a wrench with the same profile or to a three-jaw chuck. 123
ADVANTAGES Simple, reliable, light, versatile system, effective in healing of different types of displaced fractures Very easy to apply within a short operative period. Ensures hopeful fixation in fractures in reduction position. Adaptability – the spatial position of modules can easily be changed – axially and around the three axes of rotation. With this system one can achieve independent reposition of the fragments of the fracture and then fix firmly the attained good position of the fragments. Universal with respect to the implant screws – on each screw holder screws with different diameters can be mounted - from 3 up to 6 mm. Performs compression-distraction in two ways: through the compressor-distractor module and through the compression-distraction nuts of the screw holders which turns it into a monofixator for treatment of multiple fractures.

OPERATING MANUAL Depending on the location, character and complexity of the fracture, the necessary number of screws are inserted in the bones so that they should be against the holes of the fixator. Two of them are placed over and under the fracture line, in the fracture area, the rest are placed as far from the fracture as possible. Guiders and protectors are used for more precise insertion and protection of the soft tissues from additional damage and traumata. The screws having been inserted, the bone fragments are assembled and stabilised anatomically through metal modules. Remember that there are all possible modules, necessary for healing fractures with different complexity. The correct choice of these modules for each definite fracture ensures optimal steadiness along the fracture line. Inserting screws in two or three planes concerning the bone axis enables achieving a maximum steadiness of the bone fragments along the fracture line. The remnant displacement of the bone fragments after the modules’ assembling could be removed by ball-and- socket joints and thread connections. OPERATING WITH THE SYSTEM FOR EXTERNAL FIXATION
