Optimality conditions for finite element simulation of adaptive bone remodeling
Abstract Bone remodeling in vertebrates is widely quoted as a process which optimizes the use of structural material, subject to mechanical requirements. In vertebrates, bone remodeling continuesExpand

Experimental Intra-Articular Calcaneal Fractures: Anatomic Basis for a New Classification
Experimental calcaneus fractures were produced by axially loading 18 specimens. Anatomic dissections were performed and documented. Two constant primary fracture lines were identified, dividing theExpand

Necessary and sufficient conditions for global stability and uniqueness in finite element simulations of adaptive bone remodeling
Abstract Conditions which can guarantee the global stability and uniqueness of the solution to a bone remodeling simulation are derived using a specific rate equation based on strain energy density.Expand

Distal Chevron Osteotomy with Lateral Release for Treatment of Hallux Valgus Deformity
From 1986 to 1990, 42 feet in 30 patients had a combined chevron osteotomy and lateral release to correct their painful bunion deformity. Seventeen patients, 23 feet, were available for follow-up.Expand

An analytical and numerical study of the stability of bone remodelling theories: dependence on microstructural stimulus.
The origin of unstable bone remodelling simulations using strain-energy-based remodelling rules was studied mathematically in order to assess whether the unstable behavior was due to the mathematicalExpand

Bone remodeling and structural optimization.
Bone remodeling has been viewed both as a process which adapts bone tissue to the mechanical environment at each point in the structure, and as a process which optimally adjusts the tissueExpand

Bone strain sensation via transmembrane potential changes in surface osteoblasts: loading rate and microstructural implications.
A model is developed in which osteoblasts can sense the strains applied to a small region of bone through electrical coupling between adjacent cells. The stress-generated potentials within bone areExpand
