The Effects of the Frag-Loc Compression Screw on Distal Radius Fracture With a Displaced Dorsoulnar Fragment … Publication Excerpt:  “Dorsal plate fixation using a dorsal approach offers the advantages of direct visualization and reduction of the dorsoulnar fragment. However, hardware-related extensor tendon irritation, weak fixation power of the dorsal screw, and technical difficulties are major limitations of dorsal plate fixation [8–10]. Recently, the Frag-Loc compression screw (Acumed, Hillsboro, OR, USA) has become available. This screw system was designed to immobilize the dorsal bone fragment of distal radius fracture using a palmar locking plate. Herein, we evaluate the radiographic and clinical outcomes of surgery using Frag-Loc compression screw with palmar locking plate fixation for distal radius fractures that include a displaced dorsoulnar fragment.”
