I don't know about bones and screws but I did find this...

------------

Usually, a broken screw in the 5th metatarsal results from a Jones fracture that never healed properly.

But why is it so common that the 5th metatarsal doesn’t heal perfectly? Some doctors blame the poor blood supply in the area, while others say the surgical implant simply fails or a poor technique is used when inserting the screw.

But most of the time it breaks because of incomplete treatment. In many instances, other underlying issues like calcaneal varus (heel out of place) or ankle/hindfoot instability results in abnormal forces and stress that can lead to re-fracture.

Lol @ bone being stronger than titanium screw or whatever they put in JJ's foot. Clowns.

They think I make this **** up lmaoo

"We have modified biomaterials in such a way that they can be formed into robust bioactive and resorbable screws by means of a special injection-molding process," Imgrund said. "This composite possesses a higher proportion of hydroxylapatite and promotes the growth of bone into the implant."

IFAM engineers rely on conventional injection-molding methods, but they developed a granulate from the biomaterials with a net shape that results in a robust screw. The prototype's properties are very similar to a real bone's, with compressive strength of more than 130 newtons per square millimeter (a real bone withstands 130 to 180).

basically if the screw didnt BREAK .. Julio foot was breaking

Well, a lot of surgical screws are taken out because bone will literally break them as it 'regenerates' and reforms.

Bone 1, Screw 0

Those are BREAK AWAY screws those were not in Julio foot . lol been years from his fracture

PercuFIX™ is a 1.8mm diameter titanium alloy break-away screw with two differents thread pitch which allows for moderate compression and reduces the possibility of screw migration. A proximal reverse thread design allows for easy removal of the screw with a specifically designed extractor.

Indications

The PercuFIX™ is indicated for use in foot surgery:

Chevron Osteotomy

Phalangeal Osteotomy

Fusion

Percutaneous fracture reduction

MIS techniques

Fracture Synthesis of MT5

Features/Benefits

1.8mm titanium alloy for compatibility and strength

Break-away capability for percutaneous insertion (no wire cutters needed)

Differential thread pitch creates compression and reduces pin migration

Cannulated Depth Gauge allows for accurate and quick determination of pin length

Unique pin design allows for the removal of the pin with a specifically designed instrument

Features

The length of the connector

Its moderate compression

Break-away capability

Its proximal inversed threading

Its limited ancillary equipment

Benefits

Percutaneous useful

Break-away of connector only when satisfied

Removal of the screw with extractor

Simple and accurate insertion

Diameter 1.8mm/ Length : 22 to 40 mm (2 by 2 mm)

100% it is

Well explain this then that screw is attached to bone. Why didnt the point where the screw is inserted into the bone break instead of the screw. Obviously hes brittle right so the pressure in the ammount that it took to brake the screw should have obviously broke some bone along with it. Yet it didnt, only the screw broke. please elaborate on that I'm definitly curious MD swift.

You basiclly just said the screw is not as strong. That is what you basically said...... or qouted.
