Using a mechanical testing procedure, various fixator constructs were tested in vitro. In addition, the influence of the passive soft tissue structures on the fixation stiffness was determined. An increased number of Schanz' screws or Kirschner wires led to a comparable increase in stiffness than that observed with an increasing screw or wire diameter. In consequence, larger diameters should be preferred over an additional screw or wire where clinically applicable. With diaphyseal telescoping… CONTINUE READING
