The changes in strain distribution along the radius and ulna with loading and interosseous membrane (IOM) section were analyzed in this biomechanical study. Four cadaveric upper extremities were dissected and strain gauges applied. The forearm was loaded at the distal radius with a carpal implant after being positioned upright in neutral forearm rotation. Strain measurements were recorded before and after transection of the IOM. Before IOM transection, increased compressive strain was measured… CONTINUE READING
