OBJECTIVES In intraarticular distal humerus fractures, internal fixation with double plates is the gold standard treatment. However the optimal plate configuration is not clear in the literature. The aim of this study was to compare the biomechanical stability of the parallel and the orthogonal anatomical locking plating systems in intraarticular distal humerus fractures in artificial humerus models. METHODS Intraarticular distal humerus fracture (AO13-C2) with 5 mm metaphyseal defect was… CONTINUE READING
