This article is published with open access at Springerlink.com Abstract systems demonstrated a higher stiffness compared to the 90° Purpose Six different mono-axial and poly-axial distal hu- constructs for the axial loading. In conclusion, both poly-axial meral plating systems with an anatomical plate design were anatomical plating systems provide sufficient stability in this compared. The aim of the biomechanical tests was to examine scenario, and the 180° configurations demonstrated superior differences regarding system stiffness, median fatigue limit, stiffness. and failure mechanisms. Methods Different configurations of two double plate fixation .
