摘要

A distal locking compression plate (DLCP) has been used to treat distal femoral fracture. An DLCP with a large number of screws can improve fixation stability, but the use of a small number of screws can reduce the damage on soft tissue and bone. The purpose of this study was to determine the best screw position and number of DLCP screws for distal femoral fracture fixation. Three-dimensional finite element models of the spine-pelvis-femur complex were developed to evaluate the fixation stability. The best screw position and number of DLCP screws were determined using a simulation-based genetic algorithm. The results showed that the DLCP with eight screws had acceptable fixation stability. The best screw position of the DLCP was four DLCP screws on either side of the bone fragment with three DLCP screws as close as practicable to the fracture site. © 2018 Copyright is held by the owner/author(s).
