Abstract

The application of external fixation in the multiple injured patient permits rapid stabilisation of fractures and excellent preservation of soft tissue without an additional systemic load after traumatic shock. Acute fixation in the primary care is achieved by particular constructions for the pelvis and femur and modifications of standard-techniques for the tibia and joint-transfixation. In most cases secondary completions or alterations in the method of treatment are necessary.
