Rigid fixation prevents micro-motion across lines of fracture to enable healing and prevent infection, which happens when implants such as plates (e.g.dynamic compression plate) are used. Open Reduction Internal Fixation techniques are often used in cases involving serious fractures such ascomminutedor displaced fractures or in cases where the bone would otherwise not heal correctly with casting or splinting alone.Risks and complications can include bacterial colonization of the bone,infection,stiffness and loss of range of motion, non-union, mal-union, damage to the muscles, nerve damage and palsy,arthritis,tendonitis, chronicpainassociated with plates, screws, and pins,compartment syndrome,deformity, audible popping and snapping, and possible future surgeries to remove the hardware.Anatomy and physiologyThediaphysis,or shaft, is the long tubular portion of long bones.
