Biocompression external fixation. Sliding external osteosynthesis.


Biocompression is a term applied to the stresses that have their origin in the elastic deformation of a diaphyseal bone, under the loads of functional activities. Its significance is the osteogenic response that biocompression stress induces in the cells of the healthy bone. The Biocompression Theory assumes that biocompression is as essential as osteogenic… (More)
