Abstract
Purpose: To compare the initial stability and stability after fatigue of three different locking systems (Synthes®, Stryker® and Medartis®) for mandibular fixation and reconstruction. Method: Standard mandible locking plates with identical profile height (1.5 mm), comparable length and screws with identical diameter (2.0 mm) were used. Plates were fixed with six screws according a preparation protocol. Four point bending tests were then performed using artificial bone material to compare their initial stability and failure limit under realistic loading conditions. Loading of the plates was performed using of a servo hydraulic driven testing machine. The stiffness of the implant/bone construct was calculated using a linear regression on the experimental data included in a range of applied moment between 2 Nm and 6 Nm. Results: No statistical difference in the elastic stiffness was visible between the three types of plate. However, differences were observed between the systems concerning the maximal load supported. The Stryker and Synthes systems were able to support a significantly higher moment. Conclusion: For clinical application all systems show good and reliable results. Practical aspects such as handling, possible angulation of screw fixation, possibility of screw/plate removal, etc. may favor one or the other plating system.
