109-in) Steinmann pin (Steinmann intramedullary pin, IMEX Veterinary Inc, Longview, TX, USA) was inserted at the ostectomy site in the mid diaphysis and advanced out of the proximal humerus through the intumescentia humeri.
Once the fixation pins were in place, the Steinmann pin was advanced until its distal tip lay between the distal fixation pin and the distal end of the bone, and an 8-mm gap was created between the 2 bone segments at the ostectomy site.
Two of the pins were placed in the 1+1 construct described above, and an additional pin was placed in each bone segment near the ostectomy site.
The pin in the distal bone segment was placed as in the 1+1 pattern, but the pin in the proximal bone segment was placed 10 mm proximal to the ostectomy gap.

The safe load was defined as the load required to produce a maximum movement of 1 mm between opposing points at the ostectomy gap.
6) In the present study, a large (8-min) fracture gap was created by ostectomy to prevent contact between bone fragments and load sharing between the fixator and the bone.
