Complex distal humerus fractures-comparison of polyaxial locking and nonlocking screw configurations-a preliminary biomechanical study.


OBJECTIVE The investigation hypothesized that in current anatomical precontoured plates, angular stability plays only a minor role for the efficacy of the osteosynthesis at the distal humerus. METHODS An AO C2.3 fracture model was simulated and osteosynthesis performed with plates positioned in parallel. System rigidity and median fatigue limit were… (More)
