Positioning of Wire and Fetatome.

Positioning of Wire and Fetatome.
The wire is placed between the claws as the head of the fetatome is advanced along the lateral aspect of the limb to the level of the crest of the scapula. It is important to drop the chain down through the loop, from top to bottom, to ensure that the wire and the head of the fetatome end up medially and laterally to the leg, respectively.
