Is it possible to simulate physiologic loading conditions by applying pure moments? A comparison of in vivo and in vitro load components in an internal fixator.


STUDY DESIGN Loads acting in an internal fixator measured in vitro under the application of pure moments such as those commonly used for implant testing and basic research were compared with loads measured in 10 patients in vivo. OBJECTIVES To investigate whether these recommended loading conditions are valid by comparing in vivo measurements and those… (More)
