The effects of locking screw position (long column fixation--long distance between the nearest screws to the fracture--and short column fixation--short distance between the nearest screws to the fracture) and fracture gap size (1-mm and 8-mm transverse fracture gap) on stiffness and fatigue of fractured femur fixed with a locking compression plate (LCP) were biomechanically evaluated. The stiffness of 1-mm fracture gap models and that of intact femoral model were in the range of 270-284 N/mm… CONTINUE READING
