Figure 2: Clinical photographs demonstrating the steps of monolateral external fixator conversion to circular external fixator. (a) Apply another monolateral external fixator that is the same size over the existing pins. (b) Remove the secondary (new) monolateral external fixator. (c) Apply two 2/3 rings using Rancho cubes to connect the rings to the two-pin cluster proximally and distally. (d) The third proximal pin is connected by a 3-hole Rancho cube and a plate. (e) The rings are secured to the pins and connected with six struts. (f) A 5-hole cube and a socket are applied to mark the anteroposterior and lateral radiographs for mounting parameters. (g) The original monolateral external fixator is removed
