BACKGROUND The standard for operative treatment of acetabular fractures is open reduction and plate fixation. Recently, screw fixation-only methods through less invasive approaches are reported, but biomechanical data are missing. Questions posed in this study are (1) is the static fixation strength of different screw types equivalent to the standard plate fixation for anterior column fractures of the acetabulum? and (2) does the placement of an additional screw in the infra-acetabular corridor… CONTINUE READING
