- There are several surgical methods and instruments for open-reduction internal fixation of facial bone fractures. We describe a technique whereby a tapper, supplied as part of absorbable fixation instrument systems, is used to manipulate and hold the fractured bone segments. Our facility has used this technique for several years, and we are of the opinion that this novel method is very useful for fragmented small-bone fixation. The described technique simplifies the operating technique by minimising problems associated with the holding of reduced fragments before fixation.
