Our continuously evolving understanding of bone biology has led to a new approach to plate fixation. In comminuted fractures, anatomical reduction of all fragments is no longer a goal in itself. Preservation of the viability of the bone fragments seems to be the key to unimpaired fracture healing in internal fixation. The rapid integration of unreduced but vital fragments into the fracture callus functions as a bio-buttress system and prevents fatigue fracture of the implant. To realize the new concept of biological internal fixation, the limited contact dynamic compression plate, which minimizes vascular damage to the plated bone segment, has been developed.
