Subminiature single element and rosette strain gauges used for deformation measurement were prepared for surgical implantation using a technique published previously (Szivek JA, Magee FP. J Invest Surg. 1989;2:195-206). During surgery, gauges were placed on the anterior, lateral, and medial aspects of the mid-diaphysis of one femur in six greyhounds. Motion and gait analyses were performed to ensure uniform weight bearing prior to strain monitoring. In vivo strain measurements were obtained… CONTINUE READING
