BACKGROUND Atypical femoral fractures are low-energy fractures initiating in the lateral femoral shaft. We hypothesized that atypical femoral fracture onset is associated with daily femoral strain patterns. We examined femoral shaft strains during daily activities. METHODS We analyzed earlier calculations of femoral strain during walking, sitting and rising from a chair, stair ascent, stair descent, stepping up, and squatting based on anatomically consistent musculoskeletal and finite-element… CONTINUE READING
