Correction: Posterior column acetabular fracture fixation using a W-shaped angular plate: A biomechanical analysis.

[This corrects the article DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0187886.].

Computed tomography versus plain radiography assessment of acetabular fracture reduction is more predictive for native hip survivorship.

Computed tomography (CT) is more accurate than plain pelvic radiography (PXR) for evaluating acetabular fracture reduction. As yet unknown is whether CT-based assessment is more predictive for clinica...

Thoracoscopy-assisted repair of comminuted sternal fracture with bioresorbable plates.

We present a case of comminuted sternal fracture with posterior displacement, which was successfully repaired by 'sandwich' fixation using 2 bioresorbable plates that were placed anterior to and poste...

Relative Incidence of Proximal Fibula Fractures with Tibial Plateau Fractures: An Investigation of 354 Cases.

We aimed to investigate the incidence of proximal fibula fractures in patients with tibial plateau fractures and to identify risk factors for such combined injuries. From January 2011 to December 2015...

Geriatric Acetabular fracTures: Open Reduction Internal Fixation Versus Replacement

Management of acetabular (hip) fractures in the geriatric population can be very challenging because of osteoporosis, comminution and an increased risk for loss of reduction. Post-operati...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Internal devices used in osteosynthesis to hold the position of the fracture in proper alignment. By applying the principles of biomedical engineering, the surgeon uses metal plates, nails, rods, etc., for the correction of skeletal defects.

Implantable fracture fixation devices attached to bone fragments with screws to bridge the fracture gap and shield the fracture site from stress as bone heals. (UMDNS, 1999)

The joining of objects by means of a cement (e.g., in fracture fixation, such as in hip arthroplasty for joining of the acetabular component to the femoral component). In dentistry, it is used for the process of attaching parts of a tooth or restorative material to a natural tooth or for the attaching of orthodontic bands to teeth by means of an adhesive.

The use of metallic devices inserted into or through bone to hold a fracture in a set position and alignment while it heals.

The use of internal devices (metal plates, nails, rods, etc.) to hold the position of a fracture in proper alignment.
