This study investigates, whether or not, the limited contact design of the low-contact dynamic compression plate provides advantages over the dynamic compression plate in the context of tibial osseous defects. On forty dogs, tibial defects were performed and treated differently, being covered only with periosteum, periosteum fixed with DCP/LC-DCP or filled with matrices loaded with autologus periosteal cells and fixed with DCP/LC-DCP. During nine weeks, every seven days, all the subjects were submitted to X-Ray exam. All used repairing modalities of osseous defects were viable and followed by healing in the physiological time limits. The use of dynamic compression plates involves a prolonged periosteal reaction that was not founded in correct placement of low-contact dynamic compression plate.

    Fracture repair continues to be widely investigated, both within the clinical realm and at the fundamental research level, in part due to the fact that 5% to 10% of fractures result in either delayed union or nonunion, depending on the duration of incomplete healing. Beyond the temporal delay in...
