Orthopaedic Screws (Bone Screws)

Screw is a cylinder with spiral threads running on its outer surface. It converts torsional forces into compression. The primary functional objective¬†in the design of a screw is to dissipate and distribute the mechanical load. Thread design should maximise initial¬†contact, enhance surface area, dissipate and distribute stresses at the screw-bone interface and increase the pull … Continue reading Orthopaedic Screws (Bone Screws)
