Figure 16: A K-wire has been inserted into the upper tibia of a pig bone. It diverges from the ring and has been “pulled down” and tied to the opposite site of the ring with no attempt to correct the offset (in order to demonstrate the problem). Tensioning this wire will produce force in the horizontal plane but also in the vertical plane (W)
