Bone Pins & Skeletal Wires

At Surgical Holdings, we provide a range of bone pins and skeletal wires for internal fixation during orthopaedic surgery. We manufacture a range of Wires and Pins including Sterile Kirschner Wires, Arthrodesis Wires, Steinmann and Pins and Denham Threaded Steinmann Pins for internal fixation during orthopaedic surgery. We are accredited to sell these products (Class IIb product) into Europe, and the UK through the NHS and Private Hospitals by SGS (View certificate).

  • These products are only to be implanted by a qualified medical practitioner using compatible CE marked instruments/Devices.
  • Skeletal wires should only be used for fusion, skeletal traction, and fixation (to fixate bones while they are healing) in the areas of the body for which they were intended, namely hands and feet.
  • Bone pins and skeletal wires are non-permanent implants, they should be removed after 120 days, and SHOULD NEVER BE REUSED. The skeletal wires should never be misused in any way.
