Development of a testing methodology to quantify bone load transfer patterns for multiple stemmed implants in a single bone with an application in the distal ulna.

Abstract

Optimal parameters for many orthopaedic implants, such as stem length and material, are unknown. Geometry and mechanical properties of bone can vary greatly amongst cadaveric specimens, requiring a large number of specimens to test design variations. This study aimed to develop an experimental methodology to measure bone strains as a function of multiple… (More)
