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
. Having to twist the handle up and down every time is quite time consuming but worth the effort.
A locking plate decreases screw plate
toggle and motion at the bone screw interface and provides more rigid fixation.

with the Jewett nailplate.
The locking screws provide a fixed angle device at each 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.
