[A new anatomical wing plate for osteoporotic acetabular fractures: biomechanical testing and first clinical experience].

BACKGROUND Acetabular fractures are rare injuries, but there is an increasing number of elderly people with ventral medial instability in cases of central subluxation of the femoral head in osteoporotic acetabular fractures. Common plate osteosynthesis cannot enable medial support of the quadrilateral surface. The new "acetabular wing plate" is anatomically… CONTINUE READING
