Original Abstract

The study deals with the determination of mechanical properties, namely resistance to bending forces, of flexible buttress osteosynthesis using two different bone-implant constructs stabilizing experimental segmental femoral bone defects (segmental ostectomy) in a miniature pig ex vivo model using 4.5 mm titanium LCP and a 3 mm intramedullary pin ("plate and rod" construct) (PR-LCP), versus the 4.5 mm titanium LCP alone (A-LCP). The "plate and rod" fixation (PR-LCP) of the segmental femoral defect is significantly more resistant (p < 0.05) to bending forces (200 N, 300 N, and 500 N) than LCP alone (A-LCP). Stabilisation of experimental segmental lesions of the femoral diaphysis in miniature pigs by flexible bridging osteosynthesis 4.5 mm LCP in combination with the "plate and rod" construct appears to be a suitable fixation of non-reducible fractures where considerable strain of the implants by bending forces can be assumed. These findings will be used in upcoming in vivo experiments in the miniature pig to investigate bone defect healing after transplantation of mesenchymal stem cells in combination with biocompatible scaffolds.
