In contrast to fracture fixation, when performing an osteotomy the surgeon is able to plan preoperatively. The resulting fixation and compression of the bone fragments are the most important points. A stable osteosynthesis should prevent dislocation of bone fragments and improve bone healing. Beside plates, cerclages can be used for tension band or diaphysis bone fixation. Moreover, cortical or cancellous screws can be used for osteotomy fixation. This work describes biomechanical principles for fixation after an osteotomy with cerclages and cortical or cancellous screws. It also summarizes the materials and geometries used, as well as their influence on the stability of the osteosynthesis.
