Abstract provided by Publisher
This article presents further results in the treatment of tibial shaft fractures using a Polfix fixator with screws covered with a layer of nanocrystaline diamond. The advantages of this new protective layer are presented in 16 additional patients. Research to date indicates that nanocrystaline diamond can be used successfully to cover the surface of surgical screws and plates.
