Table of Contents

Orthopedic trauma is referred to a severe injury to the musculoskeletal system including bone or joints. Treatment of this injury usually requires an orthopedic trauma surgery, which involves various fixation devices, such as internal and external fixators to fix the fractures. Some of the internal fixators include Intramedullary Nails (IM Nails), IM Screws and plate and screw system. IM Nail is an orthopedic device that is used to treat fractured and broken bones. It is most commonly used device for treatment for tibia and femoral shaft injuries. Plate and screw system is used for stabilizing and fixation of long bone fractures. There are various types of plates and screw systems available, such as straight plates, T-plates, tubular plates, buttress plates, H-plates, Y-plates, and cloverleaf plates. Trauma fixators may be made of metals and its alloys or bioabsorbable materials. Titanium alloys are currently the most widely used trauma fixation devices, followed by alloys of stainless steel. Bioabsorbable materials are new to the market and have gained much popularity. Various compounds, such as polyglycolide and polylactide, are used to manufacture orthopedic implants which can be absorbed within the body.
