INTRODUCTION Polyaxial angle-stable plating is thought to be particularly beneficial in the management of complex intra-articular fractures of the distal radius. The purpose of the present study was to investigate whether the technique provides stability to match that of conventional (fixed-angle) angle-stable constructs. MATERIAL AND METHODS In seven pairs of human cadaver radii, an Arbeitsgemeinschaft für Osteosynthese (AO) 23 C2.1 intra-articular fracture was created. One radius of each… CONTINUE READING
