BackgroundScaphoid fractures are the most common carpal fractures. They often need to be treated by surgery, where the use of a compression screw is the globally accepted gold standard. Surgeons may choose between different implant materials including titanium alloys, which remain in the body or are removed after healing. An alternative are biodegradable magnesium-based implants. Properties of magnesium alloys include high stability, osteoconductivity, potential reduction of infections and few… CONTINUE READING
