Cancellous bone screw purchase: a comparison of synthetic femurs, human femurs, and finite element analysis.

Abstract

Biomechanical assessments of orthopaedic fracture fixation constructs are increasingly using commercially available analogues such as the fourth-generation composite femur (4GCF). The aim of this study was to compare cancellous screw purchase directly between these surrogates and human femurs, which has not been done previously. Synthetic and human femurs… (More)
