Cortical bone porosis associated with the dynamic compression plate (DCP) prompted the development of the limited-contact dynamic compression plate (LC-DCP) and the point-contact fixator (PC-Fix) to increase bone vascularity. However, the comparative fixation characteristics of the three designs are unknown. Transverse fractures were physiologically created in paired cadaveric sheep tibiae, which were plated before torsion testing and four-point bending to failure. The tibiae were grouped… CONTINUE READING
