A Biomechanical Analysis Of Distraction Force In Modified Hynes

  1. 1. A Biomechanical Analysis of Distraction Force in Modified Hynes-Giddins Dynamic External Fixator. Original Article Annals of Plastic Surgery. 59(3):300-301, September 2007. Cheema, Mubashir MBBS *; Mangat, Karanjit MRCS *; Holbrook, Nicola B Eng Biomed +; Rajaratnam, Vaikunthan Dip Hand Surg (Eur) * Abstract: Hynes and Giddins modified the rubber band traction device advocated by Suzuki for management of phalangeal pilon fractures and fracture-dislocations. We present here a modification of the Hynes-Giddins version of this dynamic external fixator, which allows alteration of the distracting force by a simple adjustment of the construct.
