- Purpose: This study was performed to evaluate the stress distribution in the bone and the displacement distribution of the miniscrew under orthopedic force with two different types of miniplate design as skeletal anchorage for orthopedic treatment. Materials and methods: Finite element models were made for 6-hole miniplate (0.8mm in thickness), which were designed in two different shapes-one is curvilinear shaped (C plate, Jeil Medical Co., Korea) and another, Y shaped (Y plate), fixed with 3 pieces of miniscrew 2mm-diameter and 6mm-long respectively. A traction force of 4 N was applied in 0º, 30ºand 60ºto imaginary axis connecting two unfixed distalmost holes of the miniplate. Results: The maximum von Mises stress in the bone was much greater in the cortical portion rather than in the cancellous portion. C plate showed greater maximum von Mises stress in the cortical bone than Y plate. The maximum displacement of the miniscrew was greater in C plate than Y plate. The more increased the angle of the applied orthopedic force, the greater maximum von Mises stress in the bone and maximum displacement of the miniscrew. It was observed that in C plate, the von Mises stress in the bone and displacement of the miniscrew were distributed around the distalmost screw-fixed area. Conclusions: The results suggest that Y plate should have the advantage over C plate and in the placement of the miniplate, its imaginary axis should be placed as parallel as possible to the direction of orthopedic force to obtain its primary stability.
