Design and Optimization of Resorbable Silk Internal Fixation Devices.

Haas, Dylan.

Abstract: Limitations of current material options for internal fracture fixation devices have resulted in a large gap between user needs and hardware function. Metal systems offer robust mechanical strength and ease of implantation but require secondary surgery for removal and/or result in long-term complications (infection, palpability, sensitivity, etc.). Current resorbable devices eliminate the... read more
