Abstract

A missing screw-holder threatened cancellation of a case of facial trauma surgery. We present a simple makeshift tool using bone wax to improvise a temporary replacement for the screw-holder missing in our surgical instrument kit. This impromptu set-up is especially useful when operating in the field and faced with mass casualties.
