syndromes of dysfunction / dysfunction syndromes
Explanation:
Conflicts between bone structure and osteosynthesis may lead either to breakage of (bone) substance or to dysfunction syndromes (in the articulations?)

Thanks to both of you. I just found dysfunction syndrom(typing in sydrom of disfunction worked better for some reason) on several medical websites dealing with backs/spines: This is one of the definitions:
Dysfunction syndrome
Definition:
"A painful disorder resulting from mechanical deformation by end range loading of innervated shortened soft tissues."
Minimal criteria:
at least one movement is restricted in range
the restricted movement produces familiar symptoms at end range
dynamic end range loading in the painfully restricted direction of motion does not progressively increase, peripheralise or worsen the symptoms
dynamic end range loading in the painfully restricted direction does not obstruct the movement range in any direction.

dysfunctional syndromes/ syndromes of impairement


Explanation:
osteosynthesis=Surgical fastening of the ends of a fractured bone by mechanical
means.
syndrome=a group of symptoms and signs of disordered function related to one another by means of anatomic, physiologic, or biochemical peculiarity. This definition does not include a precise cause of an illness but does provide a framework of reference for investigating it.
dysfunction=Abnormal, inadequate or impaired function of an organ or part.
There is no such thing as dysfunction
syndrome in English medical terms, nor
syndrome of dysfunction or the like.
Therefore, I would suggest the following
translation: can lead to dysfunctional syndromes/syndromes of impairements/inadequate functions at the joint level--which could be articulation
as the prev. answerer proposed, but does not have to be.
articulation=1. the place of union between two or more bones; a joint. It is classified as bein immovable (synarthrosis), slightly movable (amphiarthrosis), or freely movable (diarthosis). Cartilage, or fibrous or soft tissue, lines the opposing furfaces of all joints. 2. the rel. position of the tongue and palate nec. to produce a give sound. etc. etc. . . .
4. The movement of articulating surfaces through their available joint play or range of motion, used to determine joint mobility or as a technique for treating joint pain.
Given all the variables esp. 1 and 4, when using articulation, I would prefer
to say, that it leads to . . . at the
joint level/joint etc.
