Ninety-ninety intraosseous wiring has been used in more than 150 cases over the last 4 years to obtain skeletal stability. This technique has been effective for the internal fixation of replanted parts, arthrodeses, transverse fractures, and elective free-tissue transfers. All osteotomies and fractures healed promptly, usually within 6 weeks. There have been no instances of nonunion, malunion, or implant failure. Only one wire had to be removed due to its prominence. Ninety-ninety intraosseous wiring is an expeditious, straightforward, and very stable method to secure rigid internal fixation and allow early active motion of the digital skeleton.
