Osteosynthesis using cannulated headless Herbert screws in ..

N2 - The technique of placing an oblique screw in the terminal hole of a plate to increase screw pullout strength is widely taught in the operating room. The origin of this technique is unclear; however, it may have been used simply as a means to identify radiographs and misinterpreted to have some biomechanical benefit. The objective of this study was to measure the structural effect of oblique terminal screw placement (OTSP) during plate osteosynthesis. Foam blocks and limited contact dynamic compression plates and screws were used along with a custom fixture device. The terminal screw was placed in either an oblique (30-degree angle outward) or perpendicular fashion. A load was applied perpendicular to the plate in cantilever bending until failure. The oblique screw construct was significantly weaker than the perpendicular screw construct (399N vs. 465N, P

AB - Fracture of the alveolar process is a common injury. In some cases, traditional fixation may not be possible. The teeth needed for splinting or mandibulo-maxillary fixation may be missing. The fracture line and soft tissue injury may jeopardize the blood supply of the broken bone. In these extreme and rare situations, the best rehabilitation is needed to avoid the loss of hard and soft tissues, and a secondary reconstruction is required. Between January 2003 and December 2006, of 468 cranio-facial trauma patients studied, alveolar process fracture was reported in 28 (6%) cases. In six (1%) cases, the anatomy of the fracture lines, and the position and number of the remaining teeth made splinting and mandibulo-maxillary fixation impossible. Patients were treated with a transgingival lag-screw (TLS) osteosynthesis. All patients healed well with no complications. There was no bone or tooth loss in the surgical area, and broken fragments were not absorbed. The TLS technique is recommended for alveolar fractures when the blood supply is jeopardized and dental splinting or mandibulo-maxillary fixation is not possible. There is no need for flap reflection.

The Anthogyr osteosynthesis screw is designed for a fast and easy bone grafting on the upper jaw as well as on the lower jaw. Its special design makes it an essential tool for any surgeon already keen on bone grafting or willing to improve its use of it.

Minimally Invasive Percutaneous Screw Osteosynthesis …

N2 - We reviewed the results of screw osteosynthesis for the treatment of fracture lateral condylar physis in twenty children whose average age was six years old (range, two to ten years) at the time of operation from January 1998 till December 2000. The average interval between the injury and the operation was three and half days (range, one day to two weeks). The average duration of follow up was one year (range, one year to two years). Osteosynthesis was revised in two patients due to anterior placement of screw and rotated distal fracture fragment. Osseous union was achieved in all twenty patients. The result was rated excellent in nineteen patients and good in one patient.
