lag screw


Explanation:
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.

The two most common types of screws are cortical and cancellous screws, as shown below.

Another commonly used screw is the cannulated screw, so called because of its hollow shaft. Although these screws have somewhat diminished pullout strength compared to conventional screws, cannulated screws have many advantages over other screws, especially the precision with which they can be placed...

Certain specialty screws are also often seen. The Herbert screw is designed for use in fractures of small articular bones such as the carpals. It is cannulated and threaded at both ends...

Orthopaedists at our institution are now using the Acutrak screw for the treatment of most scaphoid fractures. This screw, like the Herbert screw, is cannulated...

neutral  Jane Lamb-Ruiz (X): these are for placement in BONES not prosthetic devices....

  -> Internal orthopedic prostheses are affixed with screws. Using all caps is considered to be shouting at someone. So not only are you completely off base in your criticism but you are doing it in a rude manner.

interference screws


Explanation:
Screws used to secure wedges [of bone blocks]

Another specialty screw occasionally seen is the **interference screw.** This screw is sometimes used in the repair of the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL). In this type of repair, the surgeon employs a cadaveric allograft ligament which has a block of bone still attached at both ends. A tunnel is drilled through the distal femur and the proximal tibia, and these bony blocks are placed within the tunnels. ***The interference screws are placed alongside the bone blocks so that they tightly wedge them into the side of the tunnel and prevent them from moving***

At this point in time, we don't know what kind of orthopedic prostheses you are dealing with. My answers refer to an internal prosthesis. We also don't know if you need the English name for the screw or if you need the translation for what the screw does.

"Screws
One of the current tenets of orthopedic fixation is that bone heals better if the fracture fragments are pressed firmly together. Many orthopedic devices are designed to do just that, as well as their primary 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…
