Passers, Wire, Bone Cerclage
Definition : Wire passers designed to manipulate wires to encircle bone and easily draw the wire back around the fragments. These passers are typically slender, manual, handheld, rigid instruments with an operating single or double curved hook end to hold the wire and a proximal end with a handle appropriate to manipulate the wire. Bone cerclage wire passers are used to facilitate wire placement and tightening for a secure fixation of bone fragments, minimizing surgical trauma. Dedicated passers are available to accommodate one or more of the wire gauges commonly used in surgery.
