Biomechanical Comparison of Intramedullary Screw Versus Low-Profile Plate Fixation of a Jones Fracture


Huh J, Glisson R, Matsumoto T, Easley M Foot and Ankle International Vol. 37, Number 4: 411-418 Background: Intramedullary screw fixation of fifth metatarsal Jones fractures often produces statisfactory results, however, nonunion and refracture rates are not negligible. The low-profile "hook" plate is an alternative fixation methods that has been promoted to
