Kirschner wires, also known as K-wires, are manufactured for various surgical procedures that primarily involve holding bone fragments stable for the time period necessary for the bones to heal. K-wire surgical techniques are less invasive than previous procedures used to treat bone fractures, such as plates and screws.
K-wires are commonly used in hand, wrist, elbow, ankle and foot injuries. Bone sizes can vary widely between patients: from adults and teens versus children, males versus females, and those with short, thin bones versus large, thick bones. Based on a patient’s skeletal architecture and the surgical placement, different K-wires may be more successfully applied.
Wire size is but one parameter that can have a bearing on the surgical outcome of K-wire procedures. K-wire tips, threading and insertion technique are additional considerations for the varied surgical applications.
