Background: This study compares the cyclic loading properties and failure loads of two screw combinations on a synthetic Schatzker type 1 tibia fracture model. Our hypothesis was that after adequate compression with first a partially threaded screw, addition of a fully threaded screw would provide more stability than an addition of a second partially threaded screw.
