[Biomechanical investigations of osteosynthesis at metaphys area of tibia and femur with selftensed angle plates (author's transl)].

Straight pressure plates create an eccentric tension force as well as an osteosynthesis with angle pressure plates. Both kinds of plate incline to gape the osteosynthesis and/or fracture gap. Therefore an overbending or additional angle allowance is necessary. In our biomechanical investigations we showed that at average bone stability, an overbending of… CONTINUE READING
