Distal radius fractures continue to show significant complication rates after operative treatment with locked plating. Failure occurs by screw loosening or screw penetration in the distal fragment. Placement of additional screws may enhance the stiffness of fracture fixation. The aim of this study was to determine the fatigue properties of different screw configurations in distal radius plate osteosynthesis with biomechanical tests and finite element analysis (FEA).
