2009 A biomechanical study of conventional acetabular internal fracture fixation versus locking plate fixation

Location: http://www.cma.ca/multimedia/staticContent/HTML/N0/l2/cjs/vol-52/issue-3/pdf/pg221.pdf

Conclusion: The locking plate construct is as strong as the conventional plate plus interfragmentary lag screw construct for fixing transverse acetabular fractures. Lock- ing plates may improve management of acetabular fractures by eliminating the need for placement of an interfragmentary lag screw. Furthermore, they may be helpful in revision hip...

2011 Prevalence of sacral dysmorphia in a prospective trauma population

Location: http://www.pssjournal.com/content/5/1/8/abstract

Percutaneous sacro-iliac (SI) screw fixation represents a widely used technique in the management of unstable posterior pelvic ring injuries and sacral fractures. The misplacement of SI-screws under fluoroscopic guidance represents a critical complication for these patients. This study was designed to determine the prevalence of sacral dysmorphia and the radiographic...
