- The internal fixation of bone fractures aims at early, complete and lasting recovery of limb function. for many years, emphasis was placed on precise reduction and interfragmentary compression as a means of keeping the fragment surfaces from moving. In cases of multifragmentary fractures, this procedure involves extensive surgical intervention and causes additional damage to the circulation of bone. The idea of biological fixation based on the work of Ganz and Mast aims to achieve a sufficiently stable fixation with minimal encroachment on the intact tissue.
