In addition, unlike stainless steel, the band maintains a uniform, continuous compression force across a fracture site. The pliability of the band allows the surgeon to create multiple loops of cable without the wire failure side effects related to kinking, which is common with the metal construct. Abstract The isoelastic ultrahigh-molecular-weight polyethylene tension band may be considered an alternative to stainless steel wire for tension band fixation of olecranon fractures. In this article, we present our technique using this isoelastic tension band and describe the outcomes of 7 patients who underwent open reduction and... Learn more...
