Abstract [en]

In healthcare today there are primarily three methods for stabilization of bone fractures, plaster cast, external stabilization and plates/screws, but these are not sufficient for all fractures. In situations where the fracture is on an irregular surface, in thin bone, fragmented bone or near sensitive tissue a bone adhesive would be the solution. However, there is no commercial bone adhesive available today for fracture stabilization, because of non sufficient adhesion to wet bone. Therefore the aim of this study has been to increase adhesion between adhesive and bone.
