Hello Esteemed Colleagues!
I have a patient who prefers to wear a pin and liner system. She has a very
tapered congenital Symes amputation, therefore, I want to use a locking
mechanism that is not large in diameter so that I can maintain total contact
within the socket. I have attempted to use Cascade Orthopedic’s locking
mechanism, somewhat successfully, but the fact that the mechanism continues
to try to “screw” her further down into the lock is working against us. Can
someone point me towards a pin locking mechanism that has a small diameter
pin receiver, yet the pin lock does not continue to spin and further pull
the pin (and limb) down into the socket?
