OBJECTIVE To compare the elastic stiffness, in several loading modes, of commercially available hybrid external fixation systems. DESIGN Laboratory investigation using a polyvinylchloride pipe periarticular tibia fracture model. SETTING Simulated periarticular fractures were created in an in vitro tibia fracture model. Instrumented specimens and intact controls were elastically tested in a biomaterials testing system. INTERVENTION Groups of simulated periarticular tibia fractures were… CONTINUE READING
