Microstructural failure mechanisms in the human proximal femur for sideways fall loading.


The etiology of hip fractures remains unclear but might be elucidated by an improved understanding of the microstructural failure mechanisms of the human proximal femur during a sideways fall impact. In this context, we biomechanically tested 12 cadaver proximal femurs (aged 76 ± 10 years; 8 female, 4 male) to directly measure strength for a sideways fall… (More)
