Is Primary Fixation with the Sliding Hip Screw Introduced into the Non-ideal Position Sufficient for Stable Pertrochanteric Fracture Stabilisation? A Biomechanical Evaluation and Experimental Study
Periodica Polytechnica: Mechanical Engineering
Purpose: Proximal femoral fractures are most commonly sustained fractures in the elderly. The one of the current treatment option of stable pertrochanteric fracture is Sliding Hip Screw. The necessity of a repeat surgery, due to the failure of the first osteosynthesis, may jeopardize the patient's life. Common causes of a failure include: fracture pattern, implant position, implant's properties and the bone quality. Each screw position variant results in damage to various load-bearing bonedoi:10.3311/ppme.13259 fatcat:aca3u5yebbhcrgn2rnlkrqvqti
