Cancellous Screws Are Biomechanically Superior to Cortical Screws in Metaphyseal Bone.


Cancellous screws are designed to optimize fixation in metaphyseal bone environments; however, certain clinical situations may require the substitution of cortical screws for use in cancellous bone, such as anatomic constraints, fragment size, or available instrumentation. This study compares the biomechanical properties of commercially available cortical… (More)
