TSF Pin Tract Sites

The TAYLOR SPATIAL FRAME is attached to the outside of your limb with pins and wires that penetrate your skin through your bone and out the other side. Pin tract sites are where the pins and wires go through your skin.


Infection is a common problem around these pin sites, but may be avoided with proper pin care. You will have a major responsibility to make sure that the pin site areas are cleaned daily - you must take vigilant care to keep the pint tract sites clean and free of infection.
