Large SK ESF Starter Kits

The large SK ESF starter kit is our most robust fixator and allows very simple frames to function well in medium to large patients. When patients are giant breeds, more complex frame geometry is available as needed. The medium ESF pin is most commonly utilized with this frame.

Available in two kit choices (PN 500.SKTDF recommended) differentiated by pointed or no-point versions of ESF pins.

Additional Product Information

Many referral practices and teaching hospitals will expand the large SK ESF starter kit to include additional medium pins as well as extended length pin selections. The medium pin is more frequently used than large pins – even in larger patients.

Carbon fiber rods are the only rod included in this kit and are very popular due to their high strength and near radiolucency.

FAQs

  • I never utilize large ESF pins - only small and medium. Why should I consider the large SK ESF System?

    Frame simplification results in reduced surgery time and hardware cost. The medium 3.2 mm/4.0 mm Interface and 4.0 mm Duraface pins have certainly been the workhorse over a variety of different patient sizes and readily function with small and large SK ESF clamps. While any device can be pushed to support larger patients, it is easier, quicker, and less expensive to construct a simpler frame of stronger components. This is especially true with fractures of the humerus and femur where Type I-b, Type II, and Type III frames are not possible. Large 4.0 mm/4.8 mm Interface and 4.8 mm Duraface pins are reserved for giant breeds.
