Within subject heterogeneity in tissue-level post-yield mechanical and material properties in human trabecular bone.

Abstract

The ability to determine patient-specific mechanical properties of trabecular bone is needed for a reliable estimation of fracture risks. Tissue mechanics and material composition are important factors that contribute to trabecular bone performance, but only a few studies have investigated the post-yield behaviour of human trabecular bone, and limited… (More)
