The objective of this experimental finite element (FE) study is to test the hypothesis that strain distributions coincide with the occurrence of cervical versus trochanteric hip fractures during loading conditions simulating a sideways fall, and that the cervical versus trochanteric principal strain ratio predicts different fracture patterns.

Introduction: Predictors of fracture risk differ between cervical and trochanteric hip fractures. The aim of this experimental study was therefore to investigate whether two-dimensional (2D) finite element (FE) models, generated from standard radiographs, are able to predict and discriminate fracture types, originating from a simulated fall on the greater(More)
