INTRODUCTION Decreasing the length of the side plate of the dynamic hip screw would theoretically allow a smaller surgical incision, a shorter surgical time, decreased operative blood loss and minimal periosteal stripping. A new design of a very short plate dynamic hip screw based on two diagonal screws has been developed. Our study compares the new design and the four-hole side plate in respect to mechanical properties and bio-mechanical outcomes utilizing the Finite Element Analysis method… CONTINUE READING
