Ibrahim Azboy17 in his study compared the results of the locking compression plate (LCP) and the dynamic compression plate
(DCP) for the treatment of shaft of Radius and Ulna fractures.
The newly designed limited contact dynamic compression plate
is technically a further development of dynamic compression plate
based on the experimental work of Klaue and Perren (1982), who developed its predecessor Dynamic Compression Unit (DCU).
For type-2 B1 Robinson classification (Displaced with simple or single butterfly fragment of middle third clavicle fracture) reconstruction plates were used in 10 patients (25%), pre contoured plates in 20 patients (50%) and dynamic compression plates
in 0 patients (0%),IM nails used in 2 patients(5%).
This study has been taken to evaluate the results of the management of diaphyseal fractures of both bones forearm in adults by open reduction and internal fixation with Dynamic Compression Plates
and Intramedullary nails.
8) developed dynamic compression plate
which seems to satisfy the basic objectives of internal fixation, namely anatomical reduction, preservation of vascularity, mechanically stable fixation and rapid mobilization of joints in proximity.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: We conducted a prospective study to compare outcomes and complications of closed displaced midshaft clavicular fractures treated with precontoured dynamic compression plates
The limited contact dynamic compression plates
(LC-DCP) was said to reduce the bone-plate contact by approximately 50% to minimize the disruption of periosteal blood vessels beneath the plate.
In our study, we used narrow limited contact dynamic compression plates
because the Indian patients have a smaller diameter of the humerus when compared to a European population, the edges of a broad plate tending to overhang the humeral cortices.
