Minimal contact circumferential cable/wire system

Patent Number: 9387024

Patent Date: 2016-07-12

Patent type: utility

An improved bone fracture binding has a length of binding having interrupted and discontinuous points of contact. The binding when placed under tension leaving gaps for soft tissue between the bone and the points of contact in the binding while securing and immobilizing the bone fracture. The binding may have a tension cable or wire positioned around the bone spaced above the bone by beads. The beads are closely spaced about the cable or wire to space the wire a distance above the bone. The beads are preferably abutting and spaces between the adjacent beads form the gaps for soft tissue. The beads are round, and preferably shaped as ovals or spheres. The cable or wire in the binding maintains tension force when tensioned around the bone.
