Table 1 Assessment of three study groups

From: Cement-augmented screw fixation for calcaneal fracture treatment: a biomechanical study comparing two injectable bone substitutes

Group Osteosynthesis Bone cement
A 2 × 3.5-mm cortical screw and 2 × 6.5-mm cancellous screw None
B 2 × 3.5-mm cortical screw and 2 × 6.5-mm cancellous screw Graftys® QuickSet; calcium-deficient hydroxyapatite, slow biodegradability
C 2 × 3.5-mm cortical screw and 2 × 6.5-mm cancellous screw Traumacem™ V+, 45% polymethylmethacrylate +40% zirconium dioxide +15% hydroxyapatite, no biodegradability
