English term or phrase:far cortex
If there is a cortex opposite through which the cancellous bone screw can be inserted, the screw should also engage the ***far cortex*** since that significantly increases its hold in bone (approx. 6 times). In the metaphysis no tapping of the opposite cortex is required. If the ***far cortex*** is thick, as might be the case in a young individual, then the far cortex and the intervening cancellous bone may have to be tapped to facilitate the insertion of the screw.
