Abstract

This chapter begins with providing an overview of the history and development of various orthopedic trauma devices, including dynamic compression plates, limited contact dynamic compression plates, and intramedullary nails. It then transitions into a discussion of the specific biomechanical properties of each design and how this allows each device to perform its necessary task effectively, as well has how these properties could potentially lead to failure. Understanding the biomechanics of each device may be helpful when choosing which devices best address the fracture being dealt with. Although all orthopedic trauma devices have a finite lifespan, this chapter documents the advantages and shortcomings of each device in order to help understand which devices may be most useful in specific types of fractures. Finally, retrieval studies for various devices are summarized to better understand the modes of failure for each type of device. Learning from failures and studying these retrievals may help to better understand these devices and could lead to development of better devices in the future.
