Single cycle to failure in bending of three standard and five locking plates and plate constructs.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To evaluate the biomechanical properties of standard and locking plates in bending. We hypothesised that titanium (Ti) constructs would have the greatest deformation and that String of Pearl (SOP) constructs would have the greatest strength and stiffness, and would behave differently compared to plates alone. METHODS Dynamic compression plates… (More)
