The principle of "biological" plate osteosynthesis describes the optimum interaction between mechanics and biology with the aim to achieve an uneventful consolidation of the fracture by secondary bone healing. The preservation of soft tissue and blood supply are central points in this context. Empirical values show that a too rigid internal fixation can suppress callus formation. The dynamic locking screw - DLS - allows for a decrease of the rigidity of a plate osteosynthesis. The fracture… CONTINUE READING
