There have been conflicting reports on the effects of gamma irradiation on the material properties of cortical allograft bone. To investigate changes which result from the method of preparation, test samples must be produced with similar mechanical properties to minimise variations other than those resulting from treatment. We describe a new method for the comparative measurement of bone strength using standard bone samples. We used 233 samples from six cadavers to study the effects of… CONTINUE READING
