Femoral neck fractures are a relevant clinical and social problem. The aim of this study was to improve the prediction of patients at-risk of femoral neck fracture with respect to the current densitometric-based methods. In particular, finite element models were used to assess the prediction accuracy obtained by combining together data from the bone density distribution, the proximal femur anatomy, and the fall-related loading conditions. Two-dimensional finite element models were developed… CONTINUE READING
