A new twisted plate has been designed for biplane fixation of diaphyseal fractures of long bones. Comparative mechanical testing of the new twisted plate and conventional flat plates showed that the twisted plate was 40% stronger when a bending moment was applied and 132% stronger to a twisting moment. The overall improvement in strength was 90.5%. Clinical trials have been carried out and this paper describes the use of the new plate.
