Objective: To compare the screw push-out strength and resistance to cantilever bending of 5 different angular stable systems using 4 different insertion torque values to tighten locking screws. Study Design: In vitro mechanical testing of 5 screw-plate constructs. Sample Population: Screw-plate constructs (n=60) were tested; 12 for each design, 3 for each torque value. Methods: To compare push-out strength, screws were loaded in axial direction on the screw tip until loosening of the locking mechanism was recorded. For cantilever bending test, screws were loaded perpendicularly to their longitudinal axis at 2 mm of distance from the under surface of the plate. Load was applied in displacement control at 1 mm/min. Results: There was a significant difference between the 5 different angular stable systems regarding both push-out and cantilever bending strength for 2 systems and insertion torque value. Conclusions: Locking mechanisms using “treads in treads” principle provide a stronger screw push-out behavior. Screws material and core diameter of the different screws were directly related to cantilever bending strength.

Abstract

Objective: To compare the screw push-out strength and resistance to cantilever bending of 5 different angular stable systems using 4 different insertion torque values to tighten locking screws. Study Design: In vitro mechanical testing of 5 screw-plate constructs. Sample Population: Screw-plate constructs (n=60) were tested; 12 for each design, 3 for each torque value. Methods: To compare push-out strength, screws were loaded in axial direction on the screw tip until loosening of the locking mechanism was recorded. For cantilever bending test, screws were loaded perpendicularly to their longitudinal axis at 2 mm of distance from the under surface of the plate. Load was applied in displacement control at 1 mm/min. Results: There was a significant difference between the 5 different angular stable systems regarding both push-out and cantilever bending strength for 2 systems and insertion torque value. Conclusions: Locking mechanisms using “treads in treads” principle provide a stronger screw push-out behavior. Screws material and core diameter of the different screws were directly related to cantilever bending strength.
