Dynamic Hip Screw fixation is a very commonly performed operation, but one not without complications. To stabilise the fixation the guide wire can be advanced into the subchondral bone. An unusual complication of this, and one not previously documented in the literature, is that the tip of the guide wire can fracture. We describe a simple method of removing the tip of the guide wire.
