Fracture fixation biomechanics and biomaterials

Abstract

Fracture management constitutes a very large portion of modern orthopedic care. Many fractures can be managed by non–surgical methods such as splinting, casting, and functional bracing. This type of fracture management is particularly applicable in nondisplaced or minimally displaced fractures – often in the pediatric population whose healing times are quite short and the remodeling potential after healing can correct residual deformity. Nonetheless, operative fracture care is being used increasingly as it has been shown to reduce disability, improve outcome, and improve the quality of life following a significant fracture. There are three areas in which surgical facture care has been shown to make a major impact on patient recovery from injury, and is pivotal in the restoration of function and quality of life.
