Abstract

Proximal humerus fractures often occur in elderly population with an osteoporotic bone substance. About 20% of these fractures need surgical treatment, especially comminuted and displaced fractures. A locking plate fixation has become one of the most popular methods for repairing proximal humerus fractures. The goal of this study was to compare the stiffness of anatomically formed novel locking plate with polyaxial screws with a commonly used Philos (Synthes Switzerland) locking plate. Both plates were made of titanium. All tests were conducted on the artificial osteoporotic bone model with an osteotomy gap at the surgical neck and the displacements were determined by digital image correlation.
