The role of the calcar femorale in stress distribution in the proximal femur.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of the calcar femorale in stress distribution in the proximal femur. METHODS Twenty-five specimens of proximal femurs were fixed to simulate single-limb stance. Strain gauges were applied to record the strain under different loads. Strain values of 27 selected sites in the proximal femur were recorded and analyzed at the… (More)
