Abstract

See full text

The invention is a method and tool used for the setting of fractured bones. In detail, the tool comprises an elongated, cylindrical rod having an axial bore. A T-shaped handle is removably fixed to one end of the rod to permit manual manipulation thereof. In the setting procedure the elongated rod is inserted into the medullary canal after it has been reamed. Manual manipulation of the rod aligns the fragments of the bone. After the bone fragments have been aligned a guide wire is passed through the bore of the rod and the rod is removed leaving the guide wire across the fracture.
