ESCARPANTER BULIES, Julio C. Transfixing wire path sepsis in external bone fixation. Rev Cubana Ortop Traumatol [online]. 2003, vol.17, n.1-2, pp. 79-82. ISSN 1561-3100.
A literature review of the seropurulent secretion formed in the transfixing wire path of external bone fixation devices was made. It was confirmed that it occurred in variable proportions under all climatic conditions, with all kinds of fixation equipment and techniques. It should be said that adequate medical care in transoperative period and a good medical and nursing follow-up in postoperative period can reduce unfavorable results.
