Assessment of Carbon Fibre Composite Fracture Fixation Plate Using Finite Element Analysis
Saidpour, Hossein 2011. Assessment of Carbon Fibre Composite Fracture Fixation Plate Using Finite Element Analysis.
In the internal fixation of fractured bone by means of bone-plates fastened to the bone on its tensile surface, an on-going concern has been the excessive stress shielding of the bone by the excessively-stiff stainless-steel plate. The compressive stress shielding at the fracture-interface immediately after fracture-fixation delays callus formation and bone healing. Likewise, the tensile stress shielding in the layer of bone underneath the plate can cause osteoporosis and decrease in tensile strength of this layer.
