The Biomechanics of Varied Proximal Locking Screw Configurations in a Synthetic Model of Proximal Third Tibial Fracture Fixation
Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma
Objective: To determine if 1) angularly stable devices created by compressing ("locking") proximal locking screws to intramedullary nails using end caps or compression screws or 2) increasing the number of proximal screws from two to three increases the stiffness of intramedullary constructs that stabilize proximal third tibia fractures in a nonosteopenic bone model. Methods: Four proximal locking screw configurations were examined in a synthetic composite tibia model with a 2-cm gap simulatingdoi:10.1097/bot.0b013e3181e47d0f pmid:21278608 fatcat:wz2akuf5lbchhnijq4imexitdy
