Trabecular bone strength profiles at the ankle joint.

Abstract

The mechanical strength of trabecular bone at the ankle joint was studied in ten amputation specimens by means of multiple penetration tests. Tibial bone was considerably weaker than talar bone (40% on average). An area of peak bone strength located posteriorly and medially to the center of the joint was found in most joints. The variation of bone strength… (More)
