Description Introduction: External fixation is the method of treating different types of fractures using needles or pins that are positioned at peripheral sites of the fracture segments.
Materials and methods: A descriptive documentary study was carried out, reviewing the literature, taking into account the review of 46 scientific articles, belonging to databases such as: Science Direct, SpringerLink, Proquest, PubMed, SciELO, ClinicalKey, Elsevier and Redalyc; studies were included between 2014 - 2018, in English and Spanish language.
Results: We located 1104 articles, excluding 1058 because they did not meet the inclusion criteria or did not have information of interest to the study.
Conclusions: The most frequent complications associated with the use of external fixation are those related to infection, generating an important challenge for health professionals.
Introducción. La fijación externa es un método para tratar diferentes tipos de fracturas mediante el posicionamiento de agujas o clavos en sitios periféricos a los segmentos de la ruptura
Objetivo. Identificar las complicaciones más frecuentes derivadas de la implantación de fijadores externos.
Materiales y métodos. Se realizó una revisión de la literatura en las bases de datos ScienceDirect, SpringerLink, Proquest, PubMed, SciELO, ClinicalKey, Elsevier y Redalyc. Se incluyeron estudios publicados entre 2014 y 2018, y en idioma inglés y español.
Resultados. Se encontraron 1.104 artículos y se excluyeron 1.058 por no cumplir los criterios de inclusión o por no contar con información de interés para el estudio, por lo que finalmente se incluyeron 46 publicaciones.
Conclusiones. Las infecciones fueron las complicaciones más frecuentes asociadas al uso de la fijación externa y por tanto son un importante reto para los profesionales de la salud.
