Hence, TSP seems to act as a buttress plate against the medialization of the distal fracture fragment often seen in unstable fractures stabilized with the sliding screw plate
Furthermore, the cephalad screws of a pedicle screw plate
or rod construct may cause mechanical compromise of the facet joint above the fused level.
All nuts cracked but bigger ones were harder to fit under the screw plate
Biomechanical studies revealed that gross loosening of the standard condylar buttress plate and DCS occurred because of toggle at the screw plate

with the Jewett nailplate.
The locking screws provide a fixed angle device at each screw plate
The Fixation of Subtrochenteric Fractures with intramedullary nails significantly stronger than DCS and DHS (other extramedullary screw plate
Mullaji AB, Thomas TL: Low-energy subtrochanteric fractures in elderly patients: Results of fixation with the sliding screw plate
Internal fixation devices that have been used to treat these fractures include the 95[degrees] angled blade plate, dynamic condylar screw plate
, condylar buttress plate and retrograde supra-condylar inter-locking nail.
