Fifty-two pig metacarpal bones were osteotomized and internally fixed using a variety of wiring techniques. Fixed constructs were then loaded to failure while several biomechanical parameters were measured. Tension-band stabilization provided superior strength, stiffness, and approximation. Crossed K-wire fixation was distinctly inferior with regard to(More)
Many current experimental testing procedures are cumbersome when applied to osteotomies of small bones and are complicated by the need for in-depth analyses of data derived from various specimens tested to failure. This strain recording model minimizes these factors. Various forms of internal fixation may be serially tested on the same specimen with this(More)
