Functions and kinds of plates and screws in modern osteosynthesis

Konstantin Romanenko, Anton Belostotsky, Dmytro Prozorovsky, Grigoriy Golka


The article contains information about devices for external fixations, namely screws of plates. Different kinds of plates and screws were characterized; particular attention was paid to differences between their design and functions. Dependence of implants upon the way of their use was characterized.
