Arthrodesis Wires & Kirschner Wires

Skeletal wires are often used to hold together pieces of bone that are too small to be fixed with pins. They are often used in conjunction with other forms of internal fixation, but they can be used alone to treat fractures of small bones, such as those found in the hand or foot. Wires are usually removed after a certain amount of time, but may be left in permanently for some fractures.

In the UK and around Europe, hospitals are now opting to buy their Kirscher wires (k-wires) sterile packed, as this is more hygienic and safer for the patient. Surgical Holdings manufacture and sell wires with a 5 year shelf life. The k-wires are packed in their own individual pouches for protection and storage. We hold all popular sizes of arthrodesis & k-wires in stock and are able to manufacture any custom size, including threaded wires. 

Our most popular wires are now sterile k-wires. These come in packs of 10 (single packed). They are available directly or through NHS Supply Chain. The sterile k-wires are manufactured with a 5 year shelf life. All are manufactured in our factory in Southend-on-Sea and then sterile packed.
