The recent trend in internal fixation of fractures puts a greater emphasis on biological fixation, which involves the use of locking plates and screws . While conventional plates rely on frictional forces between the plate and the bone, locking plates utilize a threaded connection between screw and plate for fixation and stability . Surgeons choose either type of fixation device in treatments for specific fractures and injuries.
