Abstract:The Inion(®) Free Form Plate is a newly designed biodegradable plate. After drilling through the plate and tapping, a biodegradable screw can be inserted, followed by removal of the screw head. As an alternative a countersink screw can be used. Aim of the study was to compare the mechanical properties of the 1.4 mm Free Form Plate with the 2.0 mm conventional shaped plate. Mechanical testing of the plate pullout strength was conducted for the Inion(®) Free Form Plate fixed with an Inion OTPS™ 2.0 × 20 mm Screw…
