Abstract

Objectives: The purpose of this study is to evaluate the biomechanical properties and the stability among a locking clavicle plate (LCP), a dynamic compression plate (DCP) and an external fixator (Ex-fix) in an unstable displaced clavicle fracture model under torsional and three-point bending loading.
