Statement of Need The Vilex External Ring Fixation system is designed by experienced hand and foot surgeons, specialists in trauma and reconstruction of the upper and lower extremities. The Vilex External Ring Fixation system consists of circular components, monorail clamps for half pins and transfixing pins, and the whole line of cannulated screw systems offered by Vilex. New components have been added to speed up the assembly of the frame and the actual surgery, and to enhance the surgical outcome. This system reduces profile ring thickness. The footplates for this system come in full, 5/8, half, 3/8 anodized rings. There are also varies rings sizes to include 140mm, 160mm, 180, and 210mm for allowing the surgeons to utilize all available plate holes and to increase the rigidity of the structure. The Vilex External Ring Fixation System is standard external fixation hardware with refined features for stable fixation. Some of the specialty components include hinges and linear distractors for complex cases. Two olive shapes are available. The flat end olive wire allows bone compression even when bone quality is poor. All smooth and olive wires come with a twist drill tip to avoid bone burning during insertion. This is a newly designed one-hand wire tensioner with two head sizes for outer and inner ring holes. The tensioner grabs the wire and tensions it to up to 150 Kg of force. The tensioner handles 1.5 mm and 1.8 mm wires with equal performance. Two shapes of telescoping distractors are offered for the External Ring Fixation System. There are standard and short and both are available with a broad range of shaft lengths to meet any condition. The short is particularly useful in extreme foot-tibia deformities.
