Partially adhesive fixation of an osteosynthesis plate. The new technique for the adhesive fixation of an osteosynthesis plate. The osteosynthesis plate is fixed on a rabbit bone sample with a square-cut damage of ca. 1 cm2. On sufficient cortical bone mass structures the plate is fixed with screws as usual. On the fragile bone fragment the plate is adhesively fixed to the bone of the sqare-cut damage with a PMMA bone cement and with an amphiphilic bone bonding agent as an intermediate layer.
