Because of strong loads acting in the elbow joint, intraarticular fractures with a methaphyseal comminuted fracture site at the distal humerus demand a lot from the osteosynthetic care. Ambiguities arise concerning to the anatomic position of the implants and the resulting mechanic performance. The aim of this biomechanical study was to compare the performance of different anatomical plate configurations for fixation of comminuted distal humerus fractures within one system.
