A Comparison of Plate Versus Screw Fixation for Segmental Scaphoid Fractures: A Biomechanical Study.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Volar locking plate fixation may offer several advantages over headless screw fixation for scaphoid nonunion, or segmental or comminuted fractures: (1) increased surface area for bony healing; (2) preserved vascularity; and (3) maintenance of a gap for graft insertion. The purpose of this study is to compare headless screw and locking plate… (More)
