Placement of Solid Screws With Cannulated Precision


Cannulated screws can be inserted in a precise manner with minimal damage to surrounding structures but lack the mechanical strength of solid screws. Our method allows the insertion of a solid screw with the precision of the cannulated technique. With the use of equipment from a variety of operative sets from one manufacturer, a ‘‘custom’’ equipment set can be developed. This ‘‘custom’’ equipment set allows the surgeon to benefit from the strength of solid screws while preserving the precision of a cannulated system.
