Resumo

The purpose this original article is to compare the mechanical properties of an interlocking nail-plate combination (plate-nail) vs. an intramedullary pin-plate combination (plate-rod) applied to experimentally induced gap fractures in canine femora. Twenty four paired canine femora were assigned to either plate-nail or plate-rod with 2.7 mm or 3.5 mm system constructs. In each femur, a mid-diaphyseal ostectomy was performed and the selected system was applied. Paired system constructs were subjected to compression and bending tests. The maximum load differed significantly between fixation systems. The plate-nail system had greater maximum load than plate-rod system. The strength, stiffness and maximum deformation was similar between plate-rod and plate-nail. The plate-nail system proved to be a good option for diaphyseal long bone fracture fixation in dogs.
