The biomechanical environment of a bone fracture and its influence upon the morphology of healing.

Abstract

The mechanism by which mechanical stimulus of reparative tissues directs the pattern of healing of a bone fracture is not understood. Several hypotheses have been developed that predict the ossification pattern during healing for a given ambient mechanical environment. These have remained unproved because of the absence of data on stress fields in the… (More)
