Investigation of bioabsorbable screw usage for longbone fracture repair in the horse: biomechanical features


, : Investigation of bioabsorbable screw usage for longbone fracture repair in the horse: biomechanical features. Veterinary and Comparative Orthopaedics and Traumatology 6(1): 42-46

The purpose of the study was to compare the biomechanical features of bioabsorbable, self-reinforced poly-L-lactic acid (SR-PLLA) and stainless steel 4.5 mm ASIF screws. Paired extraction tests were conducted in matched third metacarpal bones and in a synthetic bone material composed of polyurethane foam. The tests were accomplished using a servohydraulic materials testing machine.
