Measurement of fracture callus material properties via nanoindentation.

Abstract

In bone fracture healing, the extent to which the injured bone regains stability and strength depends on the mechanical properties of the tissues that are formed during healing. While many techniques have been used to quantify the overall mechanical behavior of fracture calluses, few data exist on the material properties of individual callus tissues. The… (More)
