OBJECTIVES To determine the biomechanical strength and stiffness of a dynamic hip screw (DHS; Synthes USA, Paoli, PA, U.S.A.) with a two-hole side-plate as compared with a four-hole side-plate design for the reconstruction of unstable three-part intertrochanteric fractures. DESIGN Eight matched pairs of embalmed human femurs were tested in two modes: (a) 2,000 cycles of simulated physiologic loading; (b) test to failure. SETTING Laboratory. Simulated single leg stance using a simulated… CONTINUE READING
