SIROLLI, A; SANZI, H  y  ELVIRA, G. Analysis of an Implant System for Osteosynthesis of Long Bones by Computer Simulation. Int. J. Morphol. [online]. 2015, vol.33, n.2, pp.594-599. ISSN 0717-9502.

The design of implants for osteosynthesis is a work in continuous development. New surgical techniques, manufacturing processes and materials, together with the use of tools for calculating the art engineering, from Computational Simulation allow more precise and top quality implants especially designed for each type of fracture. The adequate and detailed design based on these engineering design tools, is subjected to mechanical testing to verify and ensure their effectiveness and structural strength. A study using "Advanced Technical Analysis" through Computational Simulation, makes it possible to verify the degree of integrity of the union of a plate and screws in conjunction with the biomechanical behavior of the fractured bone. This paper presents structural assessment, from the finite element method, a dynamic compression plate (DCP), considering the influence of different types of screws and their behavior in binding and interaction with the bone. This engineering tool used for this purpose, helps the designer to ensure safe and proper designs that facilitate support for orthopedic surgeons in selecting biomechanical implants, considering the size and characteristics of the bone fracture.
