D’obtenir de la compression interfragmentaire
http://www.wikiradiography.com/page/Orthopaedic Hardware

One of the basic ideas of orthopaedic fixation is that bone heals better if the fracture fragments are pressed firmly together. Many orthopaedic devices are designed to do just that, as well as the function of stabilizing the fracture in anatomic alignment. Fracture compression increases the contact area across the fracture and increases stability of the fracture. It also decreases the fracture gap and decreases stress on the orthopedic implant. This compression can be static, where the compression is produced by the fixation device alone, or dynamic, where body weight or muscle forces are used to produce additional compression.

Screws may be used by themselves to provide fixation or in conjunction with other devices. ******Any screw that is used to achieve interfragmental compression is termed a lag screw****. Such screws do not protect fractures from bending, rotation or axial loading forces, and other devices should be used to provide these functions.
