Is failure of tuberosity suture repair in hemi-arthroplasty for fracture mechanical?

Abstract

BACKGROUND Tuberosity suture repair in hemiarthroplasty for fracture carries risk of malunion giving poor results. Is failure mechanical or biochemical? We investigated the mechanical aspect with repetitive loading in cadaveric repairs. MATERIALS AND METHODS Tests were carried out in line with U.K. Human Tissue Authority regulations. A 4-part fracture was… (More)
