  2. Insertion of the traction pin through the proximal aspect of the tibia from lateral to medial.
  3. Attachment of a bow device to both ends of the traction pin to which a cord can be attached to pull downward on leg relieving the pressure on the injured hip.
  4. Subsequent condition with the patient lying on a bed with the traction mechanism in place with the traction cord run through a pulley and attached to... More
