Internal fixation of fractures of both bones forearm: Comparison of locked compression and limited contact dynamic compression plate.
The efficacy of dynamic compression plate versus locking compression plate with regards to fracture fixation, implant fixation and bone reaction.
BIOMECHANICAL FEATURES OF THE LIMITED CONTACT DYNAMIC COMPRESSION PLATE.
The limited contact dynamic compression plate is made from a prismatic piece of metal.
Both cases were treated by replating using dynamic compression plate with bone grafting.
Among them 1 patient had dynamic compression plate fixation and 3patients had reconstruction plate fixation and 1 patient had pre contoured plate fixation.
In our series 30 patients were treated with dynamic compression plate and screws, 30 patients with intramedullary nails.
In our series, 30 cases were treated with Dynamic Compression Plate in which 22 patients (73.
5mm dynamic compression plate
was used in 62% cases which is similar to Chapman et al.
In the mid 1980's the Limited Contact Dynamic compression plate
was introduced (10,11) with the following theoretical advantages:
