Biomechanical analysis of second-generation headless compression screws.

Abstract

INTRODUCTION Headless Compression Screws (HCS) are commonly utilized for the fixation of small bone and articular fractures. Recently several new second generation HCS (SG-HCS) have been introduced with the purported benefits of improved biomechanical characteristics. We sought to determine and compare the biomechanical efficiencies of these screws… (More)
